Fodor's Expert Review Victor Lowell Thomas Museum

Cripple Creek Museum/Gallery

This two-story house museum makes the already worthwhile trip to Victor even better. Kids can learn how to pan for gold while adults get a glimpse at mountain mining life in the late 1800s and early 1900s. World traveler, author, journalist, and broadcaster Lowell Thomas left some of his estate to the museum, which is also on display inside the museum.
