Please call ahead, (970) 542-4010, if you would like to use the research facility.
We are sometimes short-handed or have a tour that needs the attention of all staff members. In case we do not have anyone staffing the research room, we request you call ahead and let us know you will be coming to see us. Also, if we know what you are looking for ahead of time we can often pull materials to aid your research.
If you are unable to make it to the museum to do your research, the museum has volunteers who do research for others on a first-come, first-served basis. There is a fee for this service of $0.50 per copy and $5 per hour, with a minimum charge of one hour. Billing is based on information found and time spent, with the bill being sent prior to research information or copies.
