Breckenridge History is committed to sharing our local history with students of all ages. Field trips are free of charge for Summit County educators and their students. Teachers can choose a visit to our downtown museums, a hike to learn about local mining operations, or a gold panning demonstration at a former mine site. Alternatively, we offer a virtual field trip option for grades K-6. Please complete the school group inquiry form for more information.
Family and Corporate Groups
Breckenridge History offers an extensive array of activities and museums with something for everyone. If you have 12 or fewer in your group, we suggest booking everyone together on an activity. If you have more than 12, we suggest splitting your group and booking on several time slots. We do not offer privately scheduled tours at this time. If you would like a private tour experience, you are welcome to reserve an entire activity even if you have fewer than 12 participants.
Wedding Ceremony Site Rentals
Breckenridge History has several unique outdoor properties that are available to rent for wedding ceremonies June through September (weather dependent). Our sites are a blank canvas and we do not provide facilities, equipment, or access to power or water. Due to the sensitive nature of our properties, we are unable to host wedding receptions or other catered events. If you’d like more information or to request a site, please complete our Site Rental Inquiry Form.
