History & Exhibits

The Breckenridge Welcome Center museum, formerly called the “Bailey Building,” includes a series of interactive exhibits about the town’s history and environmental accomplishments.

During demolition of the Bailey to create the Welcome Center, crews discovered a well-preserved log cabin hidden between two newer additions. The 19th Century log cabin, which was likely someone’s home, was fully exposed and renovated so the public could walk along the same floorboards and run their hands along the same hand-hewn beams that miners touched more than a century ago.

The cabin is now an interpretive museum featuring displays on life in Breckenridge in the 1880s through current day. The Breckenridge Welcome Center also includes multimedia displays highlighting the town’s history from its days as a Native American settlement, a gold-mining mecca and a Victorian ski village.

On the environmental front, the museum highlights Cucumber Gulch Wildlife Preserve, a 77-acre wetland sanctuary within a mile of Main Street below the gondola. This area is home to the state-endangered boreal toad, moose, elk, deer, beaver and nearly 50 species of birds.

The new Time is a River interactive timeline allows guests to explore Breckenridge from the formation of the Rocky Mountains to the opening of Peak 6 for skiing. This exhibit is great for hearing impaired.

Be sure to make the Breckenridge Welcome Center and museum the first stop on your trip to Breckenridge to learn about the town and pick up information on activities, shopping and dining. Don’t forget to check out the new museum theatre too!
