“my kids had a great time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

$6 per child gets you in all day- come and go as you please- with 2 floors of activities. It's on the small side, but every square inch is accounted for with lots of fun and little ones in mind. My kids loved the art section. They painted and did crafts most of the time, then played downstairs building with blocks and doing science experiments with magnets. It was definitely worth going!

“Great for Kiddos to pass time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012 via mobile

My wife and 2 year old went to the museum while I went fishing. My wife said my 2 year old had a blast. They had paints, music, blocks, etc. So, even thought it is a " museum", it is really more of a play land for kids. It right in the heart of CB mountain near the lifts.

“Worth checking out if you have children in your group!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2011

The Trailhead Children's Museum is worth a visit. It is an atmosphere of friendliness and fun. A huge art bar with daily specials is a hit with the little ones. Come in and plan to play and explore the arts & sciences, on a small scale, with your kids!

“Definitely worth the visit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2011

This is a children's museum in Crested Butte, CO. If you are going to Crested Butte and you have kids up to about age 8, I would go check it out. The museum is actually located at the base of the ski area in Mt. Crested Butte. Really great hands-on art and science stuff for the kids, some fun exhibits, super staff, and a really good feel. I thought we would be there for an hour max, and the kids didn't want to leave even after over two hours! Work it into your schedule. It was alot of fun. Thank you Trailhead! Every town should have something like this.
