  • Often overlooked by visitors to Montrose this is a nice museum, educational and fun. There is a nice park where you can have a picnic. Know your history.
  • Nice facility, friendly staff. Went here back in August 2017. Highly recommend.
  • This historic place is just amazing. I was here 20 years ago in the museum and it was great. But now it is beyond great. It is awesome. A great place to learn about western Colorado natives, and native people in general. Also a great gift store with books, jewelry, and modern artifacts. Also flutes...etc. There are events scheduled year round. I would highly recommend a visit when you are in town. The new renovations and the design are beyond expectation.
  • Lovely small museum with well done personal stories. The videos are a great way to hear about Ute history and life from those who lived it. The gift shop has some nice pieces for anyone interested in Native American history.
  • My wife and I were so impressed and moved by the museum. The new building is amazing, a beautiful structure. The exhibits were moving and very informative. Great place to be; I'd suggest about 90 minutes to experience it.
