  • This is a small museum that explains the amazing ice age fossil find at Snowmass Village, good for children of elementary school age. Also good info for adults to know also.  more »

  • Such a disappointing visit. They told us that the kids could touch the items with one finger but that apparently isn't the case. One of the employees, Judy, was extremely rude to my children pointing her finger in their face scolding them for touching the items with one finger. After when we first arrived she told them they were too loud. This is NOT a kid friendly place.
  • Wonderful place, great staff, and very informative. The only downside is it's location and small size. We were also met by two huge dogs from other visitors. Not thrilled about the dog's presence due to the fact we have two small children.
  • Amazingly informative about the fossil site at Snowmass. Can't wait until they can build a full museum to house more of the fossils.
  • So cool! I had no idea this discovery happened, and the little museum helped me learn all about it.
