  • 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!!!
  • 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.
  • Very packed with historic items. Not well kept or organized. But for $7 it's worth the trip. Lots of town and regional history. Loved the well manicured grounds.
  • We stayed in Gunnison in 2012 for a vintage Airstream trailer rally and just learned we will be coming again in July 2014. The best part, which we will do again, is the Pioneer museum. I have been to museums all over the world and the Pioneer Museum is one of the best (and cheapest for the quality). This year we will plan to visit longer because there is so much there to see for men, women, and kids.
  • Awesome place
