If you have an interest in history of the pioneer this is quite a museum. Great for train history and car history buffs too. Only $10 for adults to get in and is well worth it.

The admission charge was $10 - well worth it. There is something for everyone on display - and items are clearly marked. Plan on spending at least one or two hours here.

We were amazed to find a hidden gem in Gunnison, so many buildings full of historic items. We only had an hour, but tried to take as much in as possible. To fully enjoy this museum you need to spend several hours.

We stumbled onto this “gold mine” of a museum as we were headed out of Gunnison. What a great afternoon we had there. The range of displays is phenomenal. It was well named by a prior reviewer: the Smithsonian of the West!

I believe it was $10 for adults and $3 for kids. I don't remember the ages considered kids.
