As executive director of the Musem of Western Colorado, Peter Booth is in charge of a number of locations including the Museum of the West, Cross Orchards Living History Farm and Dinosaur Journey in Fruita.


The Museum of Western Colorado is looking to Mesa County residents for guidance on how to make the most of the museum’s assets — and how best to deal with its problems.
Each of the museum’s branches — Cross Orchards in Fruitvale, Dinosaur Journey in Fruita, and the Museum of the West in downtown Grand Junction — has distinct advantages and challenges, Executive Director Peter Booth said.
“We’re reaching out to the community to develop a plan and select the opportunities that are most feasible,” Booth said on Thursday.
