Estes Park has one of Colorado's longest histories as a destination, which continues today. From its naming and widespread publicity in the 1864 Rocky Mountain News to over 4 million visitors in 2019, the allure and enjoyment of Estes Park remains across generations.

Nestled at the foot of iconic Longs Peak, Estes Park's story of Native American tribes, homesteaders, entrepreneurs, and artists is unique to Colorado. With the formation of Rocky Mountain National Park in 1915 and the incorporation of the Town in 1917, Estes Park is peppered with a number of influential individuals such as Isabella Bird, Enos Mills, Eleanor Hondius, and F.O. Stanley. Often remarked as a "paradise" by visitors, Estes Park experienced its own trials of floods and fires, lending to a strong sense of community by those who live here. Learn through interactive displays and in-depth exhibits about the place many have come to love - make the Estes Park Museum your destination today!
