This was not a scheduled stop for us but someone told us about it so we made a small detour. All of the buildings were very interesting. Main complaint we would have is that hardly any of the speaker boxes were working that tell you about what your looking at. The buildings and grounds are all well taken care of... More

We didn't plan enough time for this, but didn't care. Twenty buildings just full of information and exhibits. Our grandson, 11, really enjoyed this place. So much to see! If you enjoy history, this has a wealth of knowledge.

Actually came here for an event and it was a lot of fun. I think kids of all ages would really enjoy this spot with all of the historical buildings and items. Our group had a great meal there provided by a local caters. All in all a great spot for a gathering of any kind.

On this 6.5 acre historical site includes 21 buildings filled with authentic artifacts.The cool thing is Old Town Museum celebrates local agriculture, history and heritage! Nine of the buildings are original historic structures, moved to Old Town from areas around northeastern Colorado, and the rest are reproductions, all furnished with genuine western artifacts donated or bought to showcase the history...

Reminiscent of a bygone era and small town . A lot of exhibits to walk through and many old wagons, tractors, cars, etc. we arrived too llate this trip and they were closing in thirty minutes but they were kind enough to let us walk through the front building area. We had been there previously and spent about three hours... More

This little spot needs a bump to the top, VERY informative, quaint, and so many items, so MANY of them donated by local people from that area. Glad we made the stop, and tried the ice cream flavors of days gone bye.

This is an historic site of 21 fully restored building from the turn of the century. The first part of the tour begins at a wonderful museum that is free. The fee of $6 for adults, $5 for seniors & $4 for children 12-17 is a great buy! You can spend at least a couple hours to see all the... More

The Burlington Old Town Museum is well worth the stop off of I-70. Each building is restored and exhibiting excellent artifacts and charming mementos. Little surprises pop up like in the prison and bar. This museum is worth a trip to eastern Colorado border.

Funky collection of old and not so old stuff in authentic buildings. We were ther on a windy winter weekday. We had the place to ourselves, and completely enjoyed it.
