Cost: Free
Event Duration: 2 Hours

While the current County mask mandate has been lifted for businesses, masks can still be required for entry by each individual business. Since masks are still recommended for unvaccinated individuals including children, and we do not know who has been vaccinated, we erring on the side of caution and are still requiring masks for the museum and our programs/events.

Join us at the historic Mesa School (33985 Hwy 40, Steamboat Springs, CO 80487) for pioneer activities and crafts for kids ages 5 and up with adult.

Set in the historic Mesa Schoolhouse, kids learn about life as a pioneer through various activities such as candle dipping, pioneer games, panning for gold, making mountain man possible bags, leather crafts, soap making, and more. Kids learn about teacher and student life in a turn-of-the-century one-room schoolhouse.

The program is free and all supplies are provided by the museum. Reservations are not required. Families can simply show up and have fun. Parents are also welcome to participate in the activities.
