Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: The Trailhead Children's Museum is located in the Outpost Building next to the Mt. Crested Butte base area. Admission is $8.00 per person ages one and up. Great for all ages! We offer an engaging and dynamic environment that inspires children and families to explore, create and learn together through discovery and play. Kids love pretend play in the Farm to Table Pizza Kitchen and Restaurant, dressing up as a pirate or fairy, exploring color and light in the Dark Room, & finding their inner Picasso in the Art Bar. Dad's and kids alike get creative building large structures in the Blue Block Area and creating in the Lego Exhibit. Check out our website for more info on Drop Off Programs, Date Nights, School Break Camps & After School Programs.

If you've got kids from 2yrs-8yrs and are in the Crested Butte area, you've got to stop by the Trailhead Museum. There are two floors of interactive exhibits to explore, but arts and the new musical instruments outside. The staff is super friendly and helpful.

$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!

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.

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!

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.
