Great face lift on this great Ute Indian museum. History beautifully displayed, lighting is much better now and the gift shop is larger. Wonderful Native American jewelry. I live in Montrose and am very proud this remodel was done. Don't miss it.

Newly remodeled. All senses are engaged, starting with piñon aromas, interactive exhibits, tactile and multiple videos. Good for all ages. Informative book selection in gift shop. Focus on Native American made merchandise.
