Spend an hour viewing Memory Lane. Learn about previous immigrants who made this country great. Think about about how safety has improved.

Its housed in the old Texaco hardware store/gas station that anchored Elk Avenue in Crested Butte for generations, and it couldn't be a better location. Friendly local people staff the place, and you can spend hours, literally, browsing the available items of CB history, and its also pet friendly! If you have the time, especiallly during the daytime, make sure to take a tour of the mining/skiing museum in the back!

Really good history of CB and the mines. Our grandchildren loved it. There is a table display of the way the town looked during the mining days, complete with a train. The docents are super. The gift shop is stocked with items that complete the theme and there is something for everyone. The gift shop is in the old general store and one side is still stocked with the vintage items (not for sale).

I like the condition of the museum which originally a hardware store. I liked the photo collection of the former residents.

We stopped at this museum to learn more about the history of Crested Butte and the people who founded it. It worked. There is a model of the town with a functioning model train, information on the geography, interesting facts about the local mines and a mining disaster, a display of the evolution of skis, antique household appliances, and a wall of photos and biographies of the colorful people who made the town what it is today. Many Slovenians and Croatians were early settlers. The gift shop is well stocked and has many unusual gifts and souvenirs.
