Reviewed 3 weeks ago

With innovative displays and professional signage, this gem of a historical museum covers Telluride's history from the prehistoric through the present. Don't miss the outdoor mining exhibit and the kid's sluice to pan for treasures.

Enjoyed learning some of the history of Telluride. The front desk was very friendly, able to answer any of the questions we had.

Not a destination in itself but a fine way to spend an hour (or less) if you are a history buff. We learned a lot about the area, mining, the gambling/prostitution, the fight for the valley (awesome), beavers (they even have a dam). It’s a fun place for a $5 entry fee.

Interesting museum. Worth the time to explore. Took us 3 hours to look at the exhibits and movie, but worth it.

The THM offers an awesome glimpse of the history and geology of Telluride. From the human time beginnings of Indigenous People to the mining Town boom years to the preservation of the Valley Floor. You will leave with a different sense and understanding of your surroundings in Telluride. The staff and facility are outstanding!
