“Authentic step back into time of early North Park and Walden”

Ranked #3 of 4 things to do in Walden
Attraction details
Reviewed 23 August 2013

This unique museum gives a real glimpse into all aspects of life in North Park since the homesteaders of the 1800's. John and Hazel Gresham, lifelong residents, spent a good part of their lives accumulating items, getting the museum off the ground, and leaving a historical legacy of the people and the land of North Park--filling 27 rooms are all aspects of life from home, entertaining, school, ranching, railroad, service to country, family life, community, early transportation, and so much more. Don't miss this wonderful glimpse into an earlier time in our Wnation's history. The curators are very knowledgeable about all aspects of the people and the history and are a valuable resource to the visitors.

It has a wonderful collection of pioneer artifacts and everyday life, many from local families still living in this area today. It's well worth a visit! Great examples of everyday pioneer life, homes, cooking, work, school etc, etc. Only open in the Summer months.

I only wish we had more time to spend there, the gentleman that worked there as a volunteer so interesting that I could have chatted with him all day

I hate museums and only went into this one because I had time to kill, and it was GREAT!! So many interesting items from Colorado history. They even had an old telephone switchboard that was apparently used up until 1970. You really get the feel of what rural Colorado was like way back when. A very friendly and wonderful man showed us all around. Don't miss this museum.

This was a first rate museum in a tiny little town. My wife and I visited one July afternoon and were greatly impressed. The disaplays were quite informative and the docens were extremely knowledgable. You must see the information on the National Christmas Tree. Just that is worth the trip.
