Telluride Museum: Open for the Summer + News!

The following is a note about summer plans at the Telluride Museum from the Museum family. Summer hours are Monday-Saturday 11am-5pm. Open until 7pm on Thursdays (Locals’ Free Day). For more information on updated visitation policies, please see the “Visit” page on the Museum’s website.

Happy Summer Friends,

After an incredibly busy off season behind the scenes, the Telluride Museum is open for the summer! We’re very excited to welcome guests back, and even more excited that things are starting to get back to something that resembles normal.

This year, we will be open Monday through Saturday, 11am to 5pm, with extended hours (until 7pm) on Thursdays. Reservations will only be required for groups of 6 or more people, but anyone is welcome to book a reserved entry slot. If the Museum gets too crowded and we need to meter out admissions, those with reservations will be given priority entry. We will also still be requiring masks unless you are fully vaccinated.

We hope you will come visit the Museum this summer and, if you do, you will also be able to check out our brand-new annual exhibit, “Outbreak: Epidemics in a Connected World.” See below for more details, but it’s hard to imagine that we’ve ever put on a timelier show. You surely won’t want to miss it.

And speaking of things you won’t want to miss… We’re currently hard at work filling out our summer programming slate, and we’re happy to announce that we have a number of offerings confirmed.

Similar to last summer, we will be offering historical walking tours with world-class raconteur, Ashley Boling, on both Tuesdays and Thursdays at 1pm.

Additionally, to help celebrate the 60th anniversary of Telluride’s designation as a National Historic Landmark District, we are once again hosting free monthly HARC walking tours on the 2nd Friday of each month.

What’s more, we will also be offering monthly tours of Lone Tree Cemetery on the third Friday of each month.

And finally, we can also confirm that we will be offering three “Hike into History” Programs this summer starting with a guided trek along the Bear Creek Trail in July.

And that’s not all.

We’re very hopeful that we’ll be able to hold most of our traditional summer programs and events including “Feasting on History,” “An Evening with Ken Burns,” and our “Fireside Chats” series this year. We’re still working through the details, so please make sure you’re following us on Facebook or Instagram, or visit our website for the most up to date info on all of our summer happenings.

As we begin to settle into our summer season, we again wanted to thank our amazing members and friends for their incredible support as we navigated the challenges brought on by the pandemic. There simply isn’t any way we could have gotten to this point without you, and we hope you’ll come and enjoy what the Museum has to offer over the next few months.

We can’t wait to see you.
