Temple Israel
Temple Israel Museum
Temple Israel is unique among restored buildings in the American West. Built in 1884, this frontier synagogue served a surprisingly large and active Jewish community until about 1914.

The Temple Israel Museum opened in 2012 and is a mesmerizing tribute to a nearly forgotten Jewish generation. Situated at the front of the building, the Museum displays an array of personal, festive, communal, and everyday artifacts documenting Jewish life in a late-1800s mining town. Informational screens line the walls on either side of display cases containing the artifacts. Explore the Museum on your own or let a docent guide you through the museum. Whether this is your first visit or one of many, we are always delighted to see you!

The Temple Israel Museum is open daily year round. We are now in our Summer Hours, 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM.
We look forward to seeing you!
