GUIDED TOURS & HIKES OF BRECKENRIDGE

The BHA has reopened to the public with a limited museum and tour schedule. We are working within federal, state, and local guidelines to provide safe and memorable experiences for our guests. Please read our Summer & Fall 2020 Guest Information before visiting a museum or booking a tour.

Join a local expert to explore the history of Breckenridge! 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 guided walking tours, hikes, and snowshoe adventures as well as mine tours and Victorian teas. 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 offer activities year-round and will go out in sun, wind, and snow. Check out our frequently asked questions by clicking the "Know Before You Go" below.

All prices are for adults (ages 13+) and children (ages 4-12). Small children under 4 are always free.

All our open tours and activities are available for private bookings! The same per-person cost applies and for summer 2020 we are waiving the $40 private tour fee. Private tours can be tailored to the day and time of your choosing. If you are interested in booking a private tour, please complete our inquiry form.
