History Colorado's incomparable collections—from books and manuscripts to artifacts and photographs—encapsulate the rich history of this state and help us understand the present in the context of the past.
Artifacts include a wide array of objects reflecting more than 12,000 years of human presence in Colorado and the region.
Artifacts are available for research through our Library & Research Center. Come meet with our Collection Managers on Wednesdays from 10-2 to start your exploration. Advance notice for certain objects may be required. To see a selection of our artifacts, visit h-co.org/collections.
