Volunteers in front of adobe building

Community Museums

From historic homes to adobe forts, the Community Museums of History Colorado tell the history of Colorado's many cultures and people.

We strive to instill pride and enthusiasm within our communities for our shared history. We empower members of communities across the state to see themselves as creators and makers of history — and as the writers of their own destinies. We inspire civic engagement and the need to preserve and share our culture and our past. We serve as conduits for the preservation and telling of the diverse stories of Colorado. We are Colorado.
