Meet Me @ The Museum
Vintage Souvenirs of Rocky Mountain National Park

See unique mementos and keepsakes once collected by visitors to Rocky Mountain National Park. Now housed at the Estes Park Museum, these keepsakes were once purchased as a reminder of a special visit.  Curator of Education Alicia Mittelman will discuss how they represent bigger themes about nostalgia, art, and collecting with items produced over the span of Rocky Mountain National Park’s 100 years as a national treasure. Free admission, no registration required.


Meet Me @ The Museum encourages all of us to be curious about the history of sites, events, and those who came before us in Estes Park. Museum staff will aim to include the community in their local history findings once a month. Discussions will be on-site at the Museum or participants may assemble at the Museum and then embark by foot, bike or caravan to other location(s) in the Estes valley. Get involved with the Museum staff’s topic of choice by participating in Meet Me @ the Museum events on the first Monday of every month.
