Tracks in Time
Visitors of all ages are challenged in activities throughout the Main Gallery such as identifying animals living in the Rocky Mountains in Call of the Wild and returning magnetic cattle to their ranches in Pursuing the Wealth of Land. In Roads to Paradise visitors can examine a real 1909 model EX Stanley Steamer Runabout. Also permanent features, radio evacuation announcements of the 1982 Lawn Lake Flood and chilling film footage from the 1976 Thompson Canyon Flood aftermath are found in Changes by Nature.
In the center of the Main Gallery, Stories Under the Stars is an inviting space for visitors of all ages to sit beside a glowing fire and listen to recorded stories from Estes Park pioneers. Then, enjoy viewing a vintage film in the Park Theatre.
Step outside of the main building to explore two historical structures: the 1908 Cobb-Macdonald cabin and the National Park Service Headquarters Building. The cabin is typical of a turn-of-the-twentieth-century rustic home and displays modest furniture and decorations. The National Park Service Headquarters Building served as the center of affairs for Rocky Mountain National Park when it was downtown from 1915 to 1923. Today, the building hosts temporary exhibits.
My Estes Park: Through the Lens
This summer, the Estes Park Museum is pleased to feature local photographers in the new, temporary exhibit, “My Estes Park: Through the Lens.”
Images highlight the natural and constructed beauty of the area. Subjects include scenes from family homes, wildlife, and dramatic views of The Stanley Hotel. Photographers showcase the grandeur of the landscape to the smallest, intricate details in local architecture. We hope to see you this summer at the Estes Park Museum for My Estes Park: Through the Lens. The exhibit will be on display until October 31, 2018 in the Historic Boyd Building.
