Fodor's Review

Run by a retired archaeologist, the Museum of the Mountain West depicts life in Colorado from the late 1800s to the 1940s. It features roughly 500,000 artifacts and more than 15 buildings, including a schoolhouse, church, carriage works, and several homesteads and teepees. The museum is 2 miles east of Montrose, off Hwy. 50.
