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."
