The Salida Museum is located in Centennial Park, near the Salida Hot Springs Pool, in the same building as the Chamber of Commerce office on the corner of I Street and US Highway 50. Locate The Salida Museum with Google Maps.
It is open daily, 11:00am to 5:00pm, from Memorial Day to Labor Day.
The Salida Museum contains a treasury of Native American artifacts, vintage household furnishings, artwork, historic photographs, and implements associated with local railroading, mining, farming, and ranching activities. The Museum collection, first displayed in 1954, was established at its current location in 1976. The Museum is available for historical and genealogical research.
The Salida Museum is managed, in cooperation with the City of Salida, by the Salida Museum Association, a volunteer organization that is also responsible for the Smeltertown smokestack and the one-room Maysville School.
Volunteers are currently working to restore the smokestack and renovate the Maysville School.
