“Packed with little treasures!”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

This converted house is a little gem for a small museum. Lots of great historical items. There are many fun and varied exhibits. There's a little bit of lots of things. I thought the admission was reasonable. I enjoyed it.

“Historical Walking Tour”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

Recently I had the pleasure to take the walking tour of Glenwood Springs offered every Friday evening at 7:00pm by the Frontier Historical Museum. I have only taken one similar historical walking tour (in Sedona, Arizona), but this tour was excellent. The tour leader was dressed in period costume and created a feeling of excitement and adventure throughout the evening. The tour was filled with interesting and colorful tales and interlaced with humor and plenty of time for interaction and questions. After the tour I felt "like a local" and the remainder of my stay in Glenwood Springs was much richer and more enjoyable. My hat is off to the Historical Museum for this wonderful experience. Next I hope to return for the Museum's annual Halloween Cemetary Walk complete with live characters returned from past!

“Listen to the Museum Staff and Learn!”
Reviewed 9 September 2013

The two ladies in attendance at the museum the day I visited were a wealth of knowledge and stories. Worth the time and few dollars to review the history of a great Western town. Feel free to ask the ladies for any thoughts on local things to do, restaurants, or happenings.

“excellent little museum”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

You pay $4.00 (which I think is a little expensive) and you can go through on your own. they have informative signs on the displays. there are two floors that are packed with antiques and tons of history. I loved everything about this place. the kitchen was thoughtfully put together and the upstairs has the wardrobes and guns. the bedroom is very nice also.
