  • The Museum is located in the ski resort of Aspen Snowmass, and is located in the mall. It is close to the chocolate shop. There are fossils and pictures of tigers, mammoths and other animals at the time of the ice age. She has designs for Kids paint and the attendant is very nice. Admission is free but if you want you can leave a donation or buy a stuffed animal that reverses in donation tb.

  • 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.
  • Small but very helpful for information.
  • 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.
