  • Wonderful part of our town! We are lucky to have this for our children!
  • This town is getting rediculous, and the people that are running it are the problem. My tax dollars help pay for this museum, and to have them not open on the weekend unless you book a private party, is well its a joke just like the rest of the yuppies in this town. Dont waste your time going they probably wont be open when you get there
  • Pretty amazing that the small town of Durango has an amazingly vibrant and educational museum of this high quality. Exhibits changes frequently, and are perfect for a half day visit for adult visitors to play or for kids to romp and discover.
