We stopped in trying to entertain our kids at the mall. The visit lasted less than 15 minutes. There are a few exhibits and a short film. Nothing was of that much interest.

Just popped in and stayed a while looking at all the exhibits - most visitors don't seem to bother. Would love to have seen the site when they were excavating.

Walking around the village, I came across this tiny, yet very well organized, information-filled and interesting science center. The staff was friendly and helpful, and all of the main info was very accesible.

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.
