We go by The Ute Indian Museum almost every day. The construction is going very well with walls and glass installed. The design is modern and looks to be a very interesting place once it is complete. The exhibits will be even better than before....More

It's currently under construction and on this Wednesday afternoon it was not open . Signs said Summer 2016 but from the looks it's going to be a bit longer I'm guessing.

This is one of those things I stumbled upon and really enjoyed it. I would recommend it to families, couples or to do by yourself on a rainy day.
