Through a network of museums, History Colorado shares the stories of Colorado’s past—its people, its places, and the events that have shaped the sweep of human history.

The History Colorado Center in Denver is home to ambitious exhibitions, programs for kids and adults, special events and cultural performances, and a research center that’s a portal to our vast collections of books, manuscripts, photography, documents, maps, and other artifacts.

At seven Community Museums around the state, we share the stories of the countless cultures that have made Colorado’s landscapes their home and shaped Colorado’s past—and still shape its present and future.

The Office of Archaeology and Historic Preservation engages Coloradans in discovering, preserving, and taking pride in our architectural and archaeological heritage by providing statewide leadership and support to our partners in archaeology and historic preservation.
