Salida Museum, 406½ U.S. 50 (behind the Heart of the Rockies Chamber of Commerce) is reopening to the public from 1-5 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday beginning May 7. The museum has been closed because of COVID-19 restrictions since March of 2020.

While the museum has been closed, board members and volunteers have been busy arranging new displays so visitors will find some “new” old items and displays of interest.

Masks and social distancing are still required and those who cannot visit Friday through Sunday can call for an appointment on any day except Monday. For more information call 719-539-7484.

“Salida history has always been a passion of mine and our museum is a valuable way for visitors and locals alike to learn our unique railroad, mountain and river story,” said Bob Campbell, Salida Museum Board president. “I’m so happy to be able to invite people back to visit our museum and I want to thank all of the volunteers who have made this possible and kept us going this year.”
