This museum presents the history and the art of the Ute tribes indigenous to the area. Great historic photos and videos. Impressive bead work. History well displayed. Nice outdoor displays as well. Worth your time.

This facility is expertly run. CJ and her staff are kind and informative. Our family held a wedding rehearsal dinner there but got to experience the entire museum. It was a pleasure working with CJ.
