Montrose County Historical Museum

Housed in the original Montrose railroad depot, the Montrose County Historical Museum focuses on all facets of early-day pioneer life, including a life-size homesteader’s cabin, horse-drawn farm machinery, and a delightful display of dolls, toys and baby furniture. 

While visiting the museum you will also see a caboose, vintage machinery and equipment, and a rare original stagecoach that once traveled between Montrose and Ouray. 

The museum was founded in 1964 by the Montrose County Historical Society. The collection focuses on the pioneering and settling of Western Colorado with the mission of preserving the heritage of the Montrose area.
