Take a step back in time on a guided tour of the historic Stanley home in Estes Park, Colorado.
The full tour experience lasts about an hour and a half, with each tour beginning at the Estes Park Visitors Center (map). You will be picked up by our shuttle and transported to the Museum - housed within the original home built by F.O. and Flora Stanley in 1904.
Tours are scheduled throughout the day, with shuttle pickup at the top of the hour. You will select the date and time for your tour during ticket purchase.
A Special Event: Elkfest
In 1913, long after hunting had eliminated the local elk, Stanley Mountain Wagons were used to help transport a herd from Yellowstone that continues to thrive here today. You can hear this remarkable story during a 90-minute tour of the home once owned by F.O. and Flora Stanley.

The Stanley House, like the nearby […]Read More
As a history re-enactor, I marvel at the Stanley Historic Home as an ideal setting to celebrate the amazing stories of its original occupants. To enter this home is to be drawn immediately into its charm. Securing this historic treasure as a public site would be an economic, educational, and cultural “win” for our community, […]Read More
