The Wheeler/Stallard house is a Queen Anne style Victorian built in 1888. The first floor of the Museum is interpreted as a Victorian Aspen home and the second-floor gallery features rotating exhibitions to explore area history. The new exhibition Decade by Decade: Aspen Revealed explores the stories that shaped the community’s distinct identity: from mining boom to dilapidated ranching town to today’s international recreational and cultural resort, Aspen forged a unique path. Featuring photographs and artifacts that represent Aspen’s connection to national events and trends, the exhibition reflects on the community’s place within the larger historical landscape of the nation – sometimes congruent, sometimes divergent – but always exciting. Decade by Decade: Aspen Revealed will appeal to visitors and locals of all ages, showcasing the depth of the AHS Collection.Open Tuesday – Saturday (December 15 – April 17; closed Sundays and Mondays and major holidays, including December 25 & January 1)
