The Climbing Tree Children’s Museum in Montrose exists to meet the need for a fun yet educational outlet for the youngest members of our community – children aged newborn through ten. We provide a facility where children and their families and caretakers come to learn through self-guided exploration and play. We accomplish this through hands-on, scientifically sound exhibits and interactive workshops. We are open to the public and staffed by volunteers from within our community.
