We want to share our history with you!

The Crested Butte Mountain Heritage Museum offers a variety of educational opportunities for curious people of all ages to learn about the history of the Gunnison Valley:

Historic Walking Tours

Historic Walking Tours take place on Tuesdays and Thursday in the summer and meet at the Museum at 9am.  Stroll around town and hear stories that bring our history alive. Tours are also offered a few Saturdays during the winter. Check here for scheduled tours. To schedule a private tour, contact Shelley at 970-349-1880 or director@crestedbuttemuseum.com

Illumination Slideshow

Our annual Illumination Slide Show highlights a different theme of local history each year, brought to life through photos from our archives that entertain audiences and give them a glimpse of days gone by.

Summer Speaker Series

In August and September, the Museum hosts a series of speakers who share their knowledge with audiences on a variety of topics during our Summer Speaker Series.

Historic Pub Crawl

During our Historic Pub Crawl, held every summer, participants visit three local drinking establishments and learn about their history, all while enjoying libations, good company and great stories.

Educational Programs

Following our mission to share the history of the Gunnison Valley, we offer educational programming for Crested Butte children to teach them about local history:

Crested Butte Community School K-5th grade students participate in annual guided field trips to the Museum where they learn about different aspects of local history.

This summer, the Museum and the Crested Butte Community School are collaborating to offer our inaugural Junior Docent Program.  During this three week program, 3rd to 5th graders will learn about local history and then share their knowledge with Museum visitors as "Junior Docents."
