Welcome to the Ouray County Ranch History Museum
The mission of the Ouray County Ranch History Museum (OCRHM) Is to preserve Ouray County ranching history and heritage and the genealogy of families who settled this area. Through education, historical exhibits, and ranch/farm- oriented events, we increase awareness and appreciation of the rural lifestyle and our local economy as it relates to ranching.
Museum now open for the summer May – September
The museum is open Saturday noon-4 p.m. and Sunday 1-5 p.m. from Memorial Day through mid-September and by appointment. Sunday, May 25th is our seasonal opening – from noon to 4 p.m., when we debut our new Brand exhibit. Watch our calendar for monthly exhibits and events. OCRHM will also be hosting events at the Ridgway Town Park, Sunday, June 15, as part of the community’s 2nd annual Heritage Days.
