Ute Indian Museum

One of the few museums in the country devoted solely to one tribe; the Ute People were the indigenous inhabitants of western Colorado. The museum commemorates their life and culture and is located on the farm once belonging to the famous Ute leader, Ouray, and his wife, Chipeta. The grounds include the Ouray Memorial and the grave of Chipeta.

Two miles south of Montrose on Hwy. 550 and Chipeta Drive - now also home to the Visitor's Welcome Center. About 1-1/2 hours from Telluride, on the former farmland of Chief Ouray and his wife Chipeta. You'll find a variety of beaded items, Ute objects and artifacts.
