Steamboat Art Museum
For a small town, the Steamboat Art Museum is an impressive museum. Opened in 2006, it is located in the former First National Bank Building constructed in 1905. It has offered many exhibitions since then, featuring local and other individual artists and traveling exhibits. These exhibits have explored Western themes, animals, landscapes, still life, and other categories. Traveling exhibits from abroad have been exhibited as well, including ones from Russia and Mexico. The museum receives visitors from all over the world.
