Review from Guidestar

Starting out as a hospital and ending up as a very fine small museum, THM,inc. is now a wonderful part of Telluride. Wherever one looks you'll see evidence of its vitality, the newspapers, the store fronts, scheduled events, something for everyone, young and old.

Its programs, in house,
cover the everything from a pre historic indian blanket, one of a kind, to present day events. Newly assembled movies and videos of recent events as well as hikes to still existing, but not working mines and 4X4 drives over old mining trails to present day events at other old mining Towns.

The museum is alive and well offering events and special tours for all ages while attempting to educate in the process. Two wonderful young ladies come up with something new pretty near every week and include historic ski tours, heath care on the 70's, history and hamburgers, Bust to Boom lectures; Historic Pub Crawls and Old Fashioned Christmas tours complete with horse drawn sleigh rides and Santa Claus. Never a dull moment around this Telluride Historical Museum, Inc.

The Historical Museum is a must-see for any new visitor to Telluride AND any resident as well. It has been fun to see the museum evolve in the past 12 years. The volunteers are so proud of their museum and anxious to share the exciting history of Telluride with anyone who walks through the door. Their events and tours are a great way to experience Telluride too! I recommend the cemetary tour and Fourth of July festivities. We like to bring new Telluride visitors to the museum before thrilling them with a ride up to the old mining ruins of Tomboy!

I have lived in Telluride since 1988. I loved the fact that the miners hospital was still here and that the Museum would be housing it. There are so many wonderful exhibits. The lectures offered are very educational and fun to attend. I love the doctors room and all the history behind that. I love the rugs. I love the museum!

The Historical Museum in Telluride provides a view into the colorful past of our town and region. As the Mayor of Telluride, I support fully what this community gem does for our tourism based economy as well as what it provides our homeowners and their guests. The Museum allows visitors and locals alike to take a step back into what has made Telluride so very special. From the facility itself to the staff and finally to the displays that allow all of us feel the sense history and the character of our town.

The Great!

Continue to support the organization through my role in government and as a personal donor.
