The Ute Indian Museum features exhibits and dioramas that let visitors experience the history, culture and daily life of the early inhabitants of the Uncompahgre Valley. Located on the original homestead site of Chief Ouray, the museum complex includes the Chief Ouray Memorial Park, Chipeta's crypt, a native plants garden, walking paths, teepees, and a memorial to the Spanish conquistadors who traveled through the area in 1776.
