Educational Impact Statement
As an essential community partner in education, the Telluride Historical Museum welcomes local and regional schools to explore Telluride’s rich historical and geological past, and to discover our connections to Colorado and our nation’s history.
The Museum’s programs support Colorado’s academic and curriculum standards and focus on the multidisciplinary approach to understanding and appreciating Colorado’s rich geological and historical past. The interactive learning environment at the museum offers school children of any age the ability to develop problem solving, listening, team building, and research skills. Students and teachers encounter authentic objects from the region, engendering excitement for, and a unique experience of, our history.
We offer a limited amount of scholarships that are available for schools in the San Miguel, San Juan, Ouray, Montrose, Delta, Dolores, La Plata, or Montezuma Counties School District (includes charter schools). To learn more about scholarship opportunities, click here.
