Great place to learn about Steamboat springs. Displays are arranged so beautiful. They have area that is a Victorian House, clothing, dishes, bedroom, the whole house on display. Another area all about skiing and the history of the sport.

This well done, very interesting, little museum gives a great overview of the pioneering way of life, as well as the early day ski history.
