“Preserving the rich & colorful history of Telluride”
The mission of the Telluride Historical Museum is to preserve the rich, colorful and diverse history of the region and to bring history to life through exhibits, programs and education. The Telluride Historical Museum offers far more than artifacts under glass. Aside from a visit to our Museum, join Telluride locals for one of our Fireside Chats, take a Telluride Afoot audio walking tour, read Harriet Backus' Tomboy Bride or take a hike into the high country in celebration of our rich history. You'll have an opportunity to study early technologies of precious metal extraction and the dangers of hard rock mining.Learn how miners organized in an effort to share in mining profits and how management's harsh response led to labor strikes, murder and intrigue. Hear about how the arrival of the Rio Grande Southern Railroad changed the face of an otherwise rugged and gritty western mining town.
