Crested Butte Mountain Heritage Museum

Crested Butte Mountain Heritage Museum
Today, Crested Butte is a skier’s paradise. But the town got its start in coal mining during the 1880s. At the Crested Butte Mountain Heritage Museum, you’ll learn the story of the town’s transformation from a wild west town to one of the last true ski towns in North America. You’ll also get a glimpse into the origins of some of today’s wackiest traditions, like Flauschink (you read that right… think polka and dancing). A visit to the museum is a sure way to get a glimpse into Crested Butte’s past and better understand its present.

Open 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily
