The Collection

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.

“The mission of the History Colorado Curatorial Services and Collections Access work unit is to collect, preserve and interpret, provide access to, stimulate appreciation for, and advance knowledge about Colorado history—all in the service of patrons and in accordance with the highest professional standards.”

History Colorado is committed to continued work with Tribal partners to ensure that we are aligned with both the law and spirit of the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA). Learn more by clicking here.
