We stopped at this museum to learn more about the history of Crested Butte and the people who founded it. It worked. There is a model of the town with a functioning model train, information on the geography, interesting facts about the local mines and a mining disaster, a display of the evolution of skis, antique household appliances, and a wall of photos and biographies of the colorful people who made the town what it is today. Many Slovenians and Croatians were early settlers. The gift shop is well stocked and has many unusual gifts and souvenirs.
