Not large but extremely informative! The displays were well planned out. Lots of artifacts local to the area, as well as photographs of past times. Behind the building is mining equipment which was pretty interesting. Most reasonable admission prices.

A good review of the Telluride area, mining, gambling and red light area. Covers the medical, the freighters and the madams. Also a good explanation of the fight between Edison's DC electricity and Tesla's AC. Outside is an exhibit of mining equipment

As it's a historical museum housed in a historic building I'd doubt it, but perhaps if it was a service dog?? Give them a call.
