ABOUT THE MUSEUM
The Holden/Marolt Mining & Ranching Museum explores the industrial and agricultural history of the Aspen area. From mining to railways to ranching, the past comes alive at this pastoral museum that sits on the site of the largest industrial complex in the history of Pitkin County, The Holden Lixiviation Works. The historic Zupancis cabins were recently moved to the property and are being restored to help tell the story of the Quiet Years and immigrants who helped shape the area. The Holden/Marolt Museum is directly adjacent to a public bike trail near the entrance to Aspen. New this summer, AHS extends free museum admission to visitors who either bike or walk to the museum! A docent is available to show guests through the Museum and answer questions during open hours.
