Do you want to learn the history of Mesa County, Colorado?

Experience western history at its best through thousand years of history. “Ride” in a stagecoach, “fly” a 1958 Cessna from Walker Field, or gaze upon an ancient cup and ladle from the Anasazi. Study Ute and Fremont Art, see the real firearms that outlaws used, sit in a one-room schoolhouse, and visit the Pastime saloon – all at the Museum of the West!

Our special exhibit currently in the Temporary Gallery explores 1920s Era Fashion & Culture. Come see it before its gone!
