Ouray County Museum

PO Box 151, Ouray, CO 81427

 Welcome to our Museum!


Because of the Coronavirus pandemic the Ouray County Historical Society has decided to keep the museum closed for summer 2020. We have also cancelled the in-person Evenings of History Programs at the Wright Opera House. However, we had four Zoom Evenings of History meetings this summer every two weeks starting on June 30thWe have placed three of these talks on a youtube page. To watch  the videos of these talks please go to the following URL:


As long as we are closed our Curator will be occasionally posting
  on the web site a story about one of his favorite artifacts. Click here to see all the stories.

We are located at 420 6th Avenue in Ouray Colorado.
