Lonely Planet review
An award-winning museum that sheds light on a pioneer lured west by the Pike's Peak Gold Rush in 1858-9. He reached the blue river valley in 1860. An original environmentalist he noticed the impact of mining on wildlife early on, documenting genetic deformities (such as two-headed animals) he suspected were linked to leaching toxins.
He must have seen the handwriting on the wall because he became a taxidermist to preserve the wildlife he encountered in the area. At its height he had a collection of 3000 pieces, and displayed them in his house, which is now a museum. The 12ft ceilings, an anomaly in his day, were there to display his collection. What you'll see here is the best of his work. He eventually became – don't laugh – one of the world's finest taxidermists and was among the first to create the facial expression motif. Even though now it seems strange to kill wildlife in order to preserve it, at the time it made sense. This kitschy museum is an interesting browse.
