  • Small museum with a knowledgeable and friendly staff. Check out the tour and talk schedules and keep the special events in mind. Easy access and convenient to lots of great lunch places downtown.
  • I thought they have done a wonderful job of displaying and sharing the local history and the life of early settlers. There is a little room for kids to explore hands on and my young children loved it. The museum was tough but enjoyable with my almost 3 year old, but not great for younger kids. We were glad we went.
  • Superb way to learn more about Steamboat area!
  • Nice place to see the history of Steamboat Springs.
  • Really charming little museum in an old house, including a lot of exhibits that re-create rooms as they might have been in centuries past.
