While the current County mask mandate has been lifted for businesses, masks can still be required for entry by each individual business. Since masks are still recommended for unvaccinated individuals including children, and we do not know who has been vaccinated, we erring on the side of caution and are still requiring masks for the museum and our programs/events.

Starts at the Tread of Pioneers Museum, 800 Oak St. This easy walking tour highlights the historic buildings and development of downtown Steamboat Springs and unveils the stories of the town's founding and early settlers. Participants travel past and learn about the original town square, power plant, newspaper building, courthouse, and more.
