Review for Telluride Historical Museum Inc, Telluride, CO, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Telluide Historical Museum not only has interesting historical displays about the history of this region, it also sponsors fascinating events that help people to interact with history. For instance, in the summer the museum sponsors jeep and hiking trips to old mining sites, accompanied by a historian and a geologist to explain why mining in this region was successful and to tell detailed stories about specific mines, labor strife, and other details. The museum also sponsors historic pub crawls where the guests learn about Telluride's boom town mining history and its renaissance as a ski town in the 70s. This year, the museum has begun offering historic skiing tours, where guests learn the history of the region while skiing to different sites where the historical events took place. All of these events are fun, educational, and innovative, and my husband and I have thoroughly enjoyed them.
