The Best Museums in the Country for Crawling Babies

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.
