Montrose County Historical Museum

21 N. Rio Grande, Montrose, CO 81402 - United States




Located in the historic 1912 Denver Rio Grande Railroad Depot the building showcases the stories and dreams of people that have lived in the high-desert Uncompahgre Valley for more then 130 years.

The museum focuses on all facets of early day pioneer life and includes an authentic homesteader's cabin, vintage collection of farm equipment, machinery, an original stagecoach, ice wagon and mining implements.


We will be showcasing the new timeline exhibits of what made Montrose the town that it is currently. We also have new QR codes for our outside farm equipment, plus new student/children activities.
