We had fun visiting the Crested Butte Museum. We were greeted by Rob who also showed us some of the exhibits and was a really fun "guide". This is a really small museum but very interesting and an easy and quick stop if you are visiting Crested Butte. We really enjoyed learning the history of Crested Butte: from the geological... 更多
It isn't overpriced (like most things in this town) and worth the trip in to see the old mining, skiing and biking relics.....the town has an awesome history.
Interesting look at a vintage American mountain town. You get a great sense of how rugged the people must have been, and also, how they depended on each other to survive.
Very nice museum for the history of CB. I am a train guy and the model railroad inside the museum is actually very well done. I was not so interested in the history once the ski industry took over the town, but I loved learning about all the mining and train history. The nice lady in the front was also... 更多
I like to melt back into time and see the hard life the miners had. Wow the community feel back in time was priceless. Very Unique alittle dmall like every thing in CB. CB is maxed out. The road in from Hunnuson is dangerous with speeding fellow tourists! Frightening! To vad there is not still acyrain from Gunnison. I would... 更多
Walking the main street of Crested Butte , passing many t-shirt shops, candy shops, clothing and sporting stores, it was refreshing to find a "museum". Now in Crested Butte, even a museum needs to sell a few curios, but I found the items for sale to be more interesting. Another good thing about this place is that the manager had... 更多
If you know – even just a bit – of history, then you don't need to stop here. Or to pay the admission. Or to take the “historical tour of downtown”. The “museum” is one big room which is 70% bicycles & skiing and 30% history, mainly B&W photographs of famous local residents. The heritage of Crested Butte is not... 更多
Yes this is a first class museum that tells the local history and true stories of Crested Butte. Sking and biking and mining all come together here...making Crested Butte and the Elk Mountains the best town in the most beautiful areas in all of Colorado. A must when in Crested Butte and in my experience for all ages.
Wonderful old store front with a great gift store especially for children's gifts. Also bicycle themed gifts and Colorado specific gifts and books. I never fail to make a purchase. The museum is a separate fee.
Stumbled upon this place while exploring downtown Crested Butte w/ my kids (8, 5 & 3). I just thought it was a neat little store from the outside, and then walked in to discover it's an old general store they've maintained with tons of old artifacts. You completely have the feel of walking into a general store from the late... 更多
