Ghost Town Museum
This nifty museum allows you to go back in time 100 years while moseying through genuine Old West buildings. You can slip into an old saloon, visit a sheriff's office and the town jail, or even pan for gold. Cowboy fun can be had at the shooting gallery. Enter the nostalgic arcade to see how folks were once entertained before Nintendo and computer games. Set in Old Colorado City Historic District , in the historic Colorado Midland railroad structure, this museum is just minutes from downtown and is under cover, allowing for year round pleasure. Hours vary seasonally; check the website for more details.
It was an antique museum. Not much for the little ones to touch/play with. Panning for gold was not very exciting. We also purchased some cap guns for the kids but both were broken so wasted even more money.
After a day at the gardens we decided to stop at the Ghost Town Museum and were disappointed when we got there. We went as a large group and half the people did not even bother paying the admission to get in. After paying the admission it was not as bad as it looked but not too exciting either. Not really worth the money.
If you go into Ghost Town Museum expecting it to be an amazing experience, you'll likely be dissapointed. But, if you have kids, it's a prety inexpensive stop. With coupons, the museum only cost $15.00 for two adults and a child. Plus, you get to pan for gold. And if you don't find anything, the staff is very friendly and even will go help you pan unitl you find a little piece of gold to take home. Gift shop has some unique items and it is free to go to if you don't want to spend the money on the museum. Don't make this your focal point of a visit, but if you have some time, it's worth an hour or so of your time.
I was taken here when I was 7 years old some 42 years ago. I thought it was neat but the jail cell with the old guy dummy in it scared me to death. I plan to take my family there this summer and see if I can "handle it" now. I have no idea how it has changed over the years but Im sure it will be interesting.
It was so much fun to see all that it was like back in the later years!!!! every family should come exsperiance it for themselfs!!! kids will have a blast as well as adults!!! everyone learns something new!!!!
It was basically a large "Antique Store" set up like an old west town. The people were very nice, and actually gave us a coupon when they didn't have too. If you have time and money to spare, go see it. If you do not, you aren't missing too much, truly.

A heavy indicator that this historical center offers an authentic experience can be gauged by the simple fact it offers
