Colorado's Longest Continuous Residents
The Southern Ute Museum, owned and operated by the Southern Ute Indian Tribe, is located in Ignacio, Colorado just south of the Sky Ute Casino Resort and 10 minutes southeast of Durango-La Plata County Airport. The Museum, established in 1971 to preserve and promote Ute culture, continues its mission today in a 54,000 square foot Museum and Cultural Center.
“The Southern Ute Museum strives to ensure the survival of Southern Ute people through meaningful education, cultural, historic, and current event exhibits, and to provide a unique museum experience for indigenous and non-indigenous visitors.”
All galleries and exhibits at the Southern Ute Museum are self-guided and family-friendly so each exhibit can be visited at your own leisure. Open seven days a week. Free admission.
