This is a very interesting museum located in Evergreen. My family enjoyed walking the grounds and going on the tour. The tour guide was very knowledge and all seemed to enjoy the tour. The three teenagers did comment that the tour was a little long, they wished it had been shorter. (The tour lasted approximately 40 minutes.)

There are a number of pieces of Native american art collected by the original family of the home. Apparently, they were the main donors for the Denver Art Museum's Native... More

This was our second tour of the museum, this being our best visit. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and was able to give us interesting details of the homestead that were so very interesting. The kids building toward the back of the property holds wonderful toys for kids to enjoy. On our visit several years ago, the kids building... More

My husband and I moved from Florida to Evergreen Colorado this past June. Evergreen has a glorious pioneer history that we hoped to gain knowledge of. A wonderful place to visit the beginning and growth of a community called Hiwan. It's wonderful to have a personal guide who volunteers and shares their enthusiasm with you.

Stopped by this little gem on an afternoon in March. The staff was welcoming and accommodating as we couldn't stay long.

The museum is a nice place to stop in for an hour or two. You can gain an understanding of the settlers of the area. Great place for kids to learn about CO history.
