Rangely Outdoor Museum

The Rangely Outdoor Museum has three historical buildings that house exhibits from dinosaurs to drilling, pre-historic Fremont peoples to the pioneers and ranchers and oil field workers of the more recent times. Outdoor displays include an early cable rig, the Wolf Canyon School, the Raven A-1 Memorial Pump Jack, Rangely’s first jail and more.

The 1913 School House exhibit focuses on items up to the 1940’s, and the Chevron Camp House exhibit displays items from the 1940’s boom years.  There is a gift shop, research area, oral history collection and exhibits in the Chevron Recreation Hall, the main building.  Admission is free, but donations are very much appreciated, making the museum a great place to bring the family.
