Come Visit The MacGregor Museum
The Museum is closed for the winter.
The museum will open again next Spring
The museum is open to the public only during the summer months, Tuesday-Saturday from 10:00am-4:00pm. The cost of admission is $5 for adults and children under 18 are free. The museum is open to school and youth groups by appointment throughout the year.
The main ranch house now serves as a museum, displaying the original furnishings and personal memorabilia of three generations of the MacGregor family. Visitors to the museum can take a guided tour of the 1896 ranch house and a self-guided tour of the historic outbuildings, including a milk house, root cellar, smokehouse, blacksmith shop, and antique farm equipment yard. Visitors see family clothing and handcrafts, household furnishings, original oil paintings, rock and mineral collections, personal diaries, books and early historic photographs. At the museum trained guides share Colorado homesteading history. Visitors include nearly 5,000 school children each year and over 3,000-summer tourists and local visitors. School groups also come to the Ranch for hiking, camping, wagon rides and tours of the Nature Center.
Historic agricultural equipment and methods continue to be part of the interpretive story. The Ranch also hosts an annual summer Heritage Camp (link to Heritage Camp page) for children who have just graduated from 3rd through 5th grade. The camp is held in the 1875 original homestead house on the Ranch.
