The Doc Culleton Interpretive Center Building is our main gallery

The Doc Culleton Interpretive Center Building is our main gallery and the heart of the Grand Encampment Museum (GEM).

Start your tour here, visit the GEM store, and see some unique items from the early 20th century. Restrooms are in this building, as well.

Copper mining, ranching, and timber industry history are central themes to the history of the Encampment area.

The Lora Webb Nichols Collection is also housed in the Oldman Research Library located in the Doc Culleton Interpretive Center. Her collection of negatives is one of the largest turn-of-the-20th century collections in the West!

Exhibits on these industries, as well as items from domestic life and western culture are on exhibit at the GEM.
