At History Colorado, we believe in making Colorado’s history accessible and in creating opportunities that connect people to Colorado and our past to cultivate an informed future. We are Colorado!
Our museums are home to interactive exhibitions, programs for kids and adults, special events, and cultural performances. From historic adobe forts to Victorian gardens to state-of-the-art museum galleries, History Colorado’s museums offer something for every visitor. Artifacts, stories, and art intermingle to tell the stories of Colorado’s longest residents and the stories of more recent arrivals. Visit us today to learn about the countless cultures that have made Colorado’s landscapes their home and shaped Colorado’s past—and still shape its present and future.
Each of our museums is near one of Colorado’s four National Parks or a historic railroad. Our sites add important cultural contexts to the experiences tour groups are seeking in the state. Guests love to take part in hands-on activities onsite like making adobe, cooking tortillas and crafting beaded jewelry. Every museum’s gift shop is stocked with the best Colorado handmade items, historic books, Native American jewelry and ceramics, and tons of unique local flavor.
At its heart, History Colorado fosters cultural understanding, preserves and protects the physical, cultural, and emotional places that are important to our communities, and encourages appreciation of what makes our state unique.
Come visit us and connect to Colorado’s rich history. You just might find yourself inspired by the wonder in our past.
