Telluride Historical Museum

201 West Gregory Avenue
Telluride, CO 81435


Established in 1966 as the San Miguel County Historical Society, the Telluride Historical Museum provides an educational experience while preserving its region’s history. The museum has operated for more than 40 years within one of Telluride’s first public buildings, the 1896 historic landmark Telluride Old Miner’s Hospital Building.

After completing its $2,000,000; seven year restoration, the Telluride Historical Museum is proud to welcome visitors to our facility at 201 West Gregory Avenue. During the closure, the board and staff created a blueprint for redefining the exhibits in each of the rooms in order to provide a truly educational experience that encourages visitors and locals to learn more about Telluride’s history. The Museum serves as a cultural and historical anchor for the town, providing a sense of community in the face of the town’s unprecedented growth and change. Ten thematic rooms, a gallery which rotates exhibits and a Museum store all showcases Telluride’s dramatic history. The eclectic collection is being displayed in contextual, dramatic settings – telling stories in three dimensions with theatrical groupings of displays and hands on, interactive features.
