The volunteers and members of the Salida Museum wish all our friends a very Happy New Year. Snow and wind and the holidays have made Salida a very magical place and we wish to thank everyone that dropped by this past year. We are going to close the museum for the month of January. This past October we had our annual visits from the Salida 2nd Graders and had special help from volunteers (Linda Taylor was at the museum this year to help with kids, Thanks Linda!). The tours included the museum, Maysville schoolhouse, the smoke stack and 1806 Pike Christmas display on Hwy 285. (you can find some of their thank you notes in the Events menu) Come by and enjoy the “Heart of the Rockies History” at the museum in February 2012 on Saturdays. We still are looking for volunteers to help with the winter season and for training. If you can volunteer once or twice a month that would be great and work very well. Our plan, right now, is: Sunday – CLOSED, Monday – CLOSED, Tuesday – CLOSED, Wednesday – CLOSED, Thursday – CLOSED, Friday – CLOSED, Saturday - CLOSED. If you are available on Saturday in February and would like to volunteer we would love to hear from you. You would share the day with other volunteers for training. (that would help us get a head start on the 2012 summer season) So go to our contact page to let us know you want to volunteer. Thanks and hope to see you soon! Also if you are looking to visit the museum and need a special time or day contact us and we will see what we can work out.

After Labor Day, with the help of volunteers, the museum is open just few days a week. If you are looking to visit the museum and need a special time or day contact us and we will see what we can work out.
