BRECKENRIDGE MUSEUMS & EXHIBITS
BHA museums are currently available for private viewings. Please complete the tour inquiry form and allow 48 hours advance notice.
Step back in time in our free local history museums! From a rough and tumble mining camp, to a civilized Victorian town, to a hippie haven, and now an international resort destination, there's history on every corner. We offer an "overview" local history museum at the Breckenridge Welcome Center as well as several themed and historic house museums. There's something for everyone - families, couples, explorers, and those just strolling through town while the rest of their group is on the slopes. We have museums open year-round and they are all free.
