Ute Indian Museum: Discover the History of the Ute Territory

Visit Montrose

Updated: 11/6/2018

The only History Colorado museum on the Western Slope, the Ute Indian Museum offers one of the most complete collections of Ute artifacts in the United States. Dioramas, rotating exhibits and engaging programs bring history and culture of past, present and future generations together for all to enjoy. The museum grounds include the Ouray Memorial Park, teepees, picnic areas, the gravesite of Chief Ouray’s wife Chipeta, a native plants garden, an outdoor display of the Dominquez-Escalante Expedition of 1776 and a pier out to the Uncompahgre River. 

The museum is currently undergoing a multi-million-dollar expansion — visit the temporary location at the Montrose Visitor Center at 107 S Cascade Ave.
