This small museum is worth the few dollars admission if you really like small town museums. It pales in comparison to the wonderful museum just 28 miles away in Gunnison. But this museum does have character. It's located in what was once a general store and the village's first gas station. The front of the interior is very small town general store in nature, and a gift shop is in the adjoining room. There is one other room with displays, including some about coal mining in the area and a scale model of the village. The lady at the counter was wonderful about giving me directions to other sites in the town -- the cemetery (great views), the old coke ovens (apparently gone), the old mine (apparently obliterated), the old depot (now the Chamber Of Commerce), etc. I stop at local museums to give them my financial support, and that's the primary reason to stop here.
