History Colorado Center

History Colorado Center

Artifacts, stories, and art intermingle to tell the tale of Colorado and the American West. Designed for multi-generational audiences, the museum captures the pioneering and individualistic spirit of Colorado with exhibitions and programs.

Colorado’s story is constantly evolving, and new exhibitions and displays What’s Your Story?, Beer Here! Brewing the New West, A Legacy of Healing and Portraits of Courage bridge the gap between the history of this great state and its impact on the here and now.

Coming in Fall 2020: As a Smithsonian Affiliate Museum, the History Colorado Center is collaborating with the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History to bring the traveling exhibition American Democracy: A Great Leap of Faith to Denver during the 2020 presidential election. 

FREE Admission for Middle and High School Students!
December 21, 2019 – January 5, 2020
Made possible through the generous support of CiviCO, sponsor of the exhibition What’s Your Story?

Great place for all ages

"Interactive displays that document the history of Colorado ... the good times, hard times and disturbing times. Honest and comprehensive museum." - November 2019, TripAdvisor

A lot more than expected

"Prior to going, I was thinking this would just be another museum, boy was I wrong. Very well put together. Enjoyed seeing a place for the young to play and learn. The thought that went into the exhibits were really something else. We enjoyed the way environmental issues were addressed without downgrading anyone's intelligence." - September 2019, TripAdvisor
