Join the Museum and The Pinhead Institute as we celebrate Telluride as a “Place of Invention” with an advanced screening of Rocky Mountain PBS’ “Hydro Power” and student presentations! Tuesday, January 13, 2015, at the Sheridan Opera House. A FREE event! In 2013, the Museum and The Pinhead Institute were selected by the Smithsonian’s Lemelson Center for the Study of Invention and Innovation to participate in a groundbreaking exhibit, “Places of Invention,” set to open at the National Museum of American History July 1, 2015. This special event will use the ground-breaking hydroelectric project at Ames in 1891, as the focal point for its contribution to “Places of Invention.”
