  • There are some real gems here but they are mixed in with some not so great exhibits. There is a whole building of toy trains and cars. Some would love that. There are cattle brands and saddles, old to...  more »

  • This museum is overwhelming in the sheer variety and number of items it showcases. Do not be deceived by the size of the front facade... This place will take you at least a good 4 hours to see properly. Enjoyed the whole experience, especially the antique car warehouse (don't forget to go through the door at the back of the first room!), the schoolhouse, train, and the vintage fashion installments. Enjoy!
  • Nicely spaced out. Real things right next to you. While building replicas of lost era's: the one room schoolhouse was one favorite. Going inside the caboose train car another. Just enough signage to help you make sense of the collections. Worth an afternoon!
  • Fantastic journey in to the lives of Colorado pioneers and settlers of the last 150 years. Trains, cars, and daily life of a bygone era. You will need more time or need to visit again, as there is so much to see.
  • Worth the visit. Lots of pieces of recent history. Lovely staff. Definitely a place to take kids and explain how people lived a hundred years ago.
  • I loved every minute, such a awesome collection of things. It is worth the money I think, it's a great place to take your kids and show them some history. I Will be going back!!!
