Museum During the Pandemic


The Tread of Pioneers Museum is closed until further notice due to health and safety concerns during the COVID-19 pandemic. We are prioritizing staff, volunteer and patron safety in deciding to remain closed, as we continually assess the evolving pandemic in our town and country.

Please visit our website, Facebook page and YouTube Channel for virtual events, programming and historical content. Our website contains a calendar of in-person events that will be held outside and at historical sites around Routt County this summer.

Please call 970.879.2214 if you need to speak with a staff person, as we are here working daily.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
We are here are working hard to preserve, share and celebrate Routt County’s history!
