She’s on the move, but not on her feet yet. Lucky for you, there are plenty of museums that cater to the crawling set. Even better, a visit won’t break your budget, since kids under one are almost always free-of-charge. Here, you’ll find 14 of our favorite museums for busy crawlers, both large and small, from across the country.

The Trailhead Children’s Museum – Crested Butte, Co

Mountain babies get the chance to crawl, relax and create at cozy Trailhead Children's Museum in Crested Butte, Colorado. The gated Nursery Nook is a safe area set aside just for little ones to play. Even more awesome: experienced instructors lead regular Art Babies & Toddler Art classes, which are sensory-based sessions designed to nurture exploration through extra messy, fun projects. And you won't have to worry about clean up. Admission is free for under-ones, and costs $8 per person for everyone else.
