The John Denver Experience

The John Denver Experience is a tranquil no-to-low touch environment. It is set amid the ambience of aspens and evergreens and backed by a soundtrack of essential John Denver songs that are punctuated with the sounds of nature. The experience features a sunshine room, nature photographs taken by Denver, concert footage, and photo ops with life-size John Denver cutouts. Artifacts on loan from the John Denver Estate, including an all-denim ski suit and handwritten lyric sheets, are also on view.

Surprise scavenger hunts with free keepsakes are available for families, along with shopping in the contactless gift shop.

On Thursday evenings in July, when the History Colorado Center is open until 8 p.m., guests enjoy specially curated playlists from local musicians and artists supported by History Colorado. Artists including Venus Cruz, DJ Slave1, the Mile High Soul Club, Barry Osborne from Swallow Hill Music, and Molina Speaks are set to appear beginning July 2. Register and learn more here.
