“A little History”
Reviewed 12 March 2014

Helps to see CB evolution from silver mining community to anthracite coal mining town to ski resort and mountain bike destination. Loved the stories, the photos and the sense of place.

“Your Grandma's Attic”
Reviewed 24 January 2014

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

“Perfect Historical Representation!”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

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!

“Wonderful small town museum”
Reviewed 31 August 2013

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).
