From town hospital to museum, it has come the full circle. The meseum and its managment is very impressive. This coming spring/summer they are planning a program on the history of Law Enforcement in San Miguel county, that should be of great interest.

It appears that it is operating fairly good. I would like to see the museum follow through on the Law Enforcement program.

Whenever one of my friends or family come to visit me in
Telluride I always take them to the museum. It tells so many stories in such interesting ways and the programs I've attended have always been informative. The staff have helped me in my own historic research on several occasions
helping me get in contact with local historians, and sharing their knowledge

I had the genuine pleasure of visiting this museum this past weekend while my husband enjoyed the fresh powder on the mountain. I absolutely adored my experience. The history and knowledge given by Barbara as I walked in, as well as the displays around the museum, were all top notch. I especially loved the Telluride Blanket and the Tellurider exhibits, but my favorite part was the small reconstructed cabin of Harriet Fish Backus. I had read Tomboy Bride several years ago and loved the story of Backus' many adventures. But to see a small portion of her life in the museum made my reading that much more tangible. I highly recommend a visit to this museum for anyone who is in town. You won't regret it!

The museum provides a fascinating history of the area around Telluride. I particularly enjoyed the displays of old household products and things that the miners used. There were some really interesting displays about the transport to the mines. A well done history. There were some great "fun facts".

we returned to telluride after 30 years. my husband and i celebrated our honeymoon here in feb. 1981. we went upstairs and were pleased to see the display from the iron ladel. during our week stay we ate there many times. at times we would see our waitress sometimes working at the lift, sometimes at the ladel and also at the bakery. enjoyed seeing the photos and it brought back memories not only of that week but the styles and trends that i had forgotton. enjoyed it a lot

A wonderful local museum full of interesting information about the topography, history and characters that make Telluride what it is today. I had no idea there had been so many mines operating in the area. The transition to a resort community is fully documented here.

Really enjoyed the museum...found the Indian history very interesting. Enjoyed learning about Butch Cassidy and his first robbery in Telluride. I loved looking at the old log cabin that was a replica of the real one, complete with stove, dining room table and chairs, utensils, etc. Also enjoyed the transition to the ore mining industry and then to the skiing frenzy. I liked how you could get close to all the exhibits as well.

This is our first visit to Telluride and we strongly advise any visitor to take the short stroll up the hill to experience The Telluride Museum. The beautiful historic stone building houses comprehensive and fascinating exhibits that give you an understanding of this unique town.
Give yourself
a couple of hours to soak up the rich history of Telluride.
