Collections and Research Building



The future Collections and Research Facility
will give the museum staff ample space for over 30,000 locally significant
artifacts and will give Estes Park Museum visitors a place to
examine those artificats and study their significance.

We started a three-year fundraising campaign in September 2016
and we have an estimated goal of $2 million.

See stunning virtual tour below.

Please consider a tax-deductible donation or
the purchase of an 8″ X 8″ paver to create the walkway leading
to the new building: “A Path to the Past”.

Few publicly funded museums, especially those which charge no admission, can achieve excellence without private support.  The aspirations of the Estes Park Museum Friends & Foundation, Inc. are high.   We want the Estes Park Museum to be “the premier local history regional museum in Colorado.” Making that happen requires your help.

Your gifts provide the all-important margin of difference.
