  • You never know what you are going to get with these small historical museums, but this one was really well done. It was inexpensive ($5 / adult), and had a lot of cool interactive demonstrations (such as a dynamite simulator, an ore push-cart, a water-powered electric generator). Additionally it had a bunch of cool scale models of different aspects of mines. There are videos throughout the exhibit, although we did not spend much time watching them, so I can't comment on their quality. Some other details: The museum was built out of a restored mining hospital. It takes up both floors of the hospital, and there are some exhibits in the side yard and rear yard of the hospital. Its pretty easy to spend an hour there, depending on how much text you read in each display. An amusing find is one of the antique shave club kits. Hilarious when you realize people have been working that scam for over 100 years. Definitely worth a stop if you are looking for something to do to get out of the cold in Telluride.
  • What a gem of a museum. We learned so much about Telluride, and Ingrid was such a gracious and informative host. If you need a break from skiing, come by the museum, you won't regret it!
  • Learned a great deal about the mining community and the way of life in the late 1900s and early 20th century. Well worth a visit! Allow at least one and a half hours.
  • Wonderful little Museum. Expect to spend some time and learn of the great history in this area
  • Take a break and get to know this wonderful town
