  • Plenty of hands on exhibits, you can touch a lot of the displays. Several places to stop and view a movie or short video. It was well organized and we all enjoyed it from ages 13-85.  more »
  • Saw the art and articles of colorado. Good display, very informative, mainly on the cowboy period but with some displays from the Pueblo Indian culture.  more »
  • My often-snarky teen and I thought the Center would only occupy a couple hours and be geared to younger kids, but we ended up in there for a half a day and had a lot of nerdy fun. The interactive exhi...  more »

  • I would have loved to stay longer and see the bottom floor, but the kids groups were out of control. I would think that the kids would have boundaries and talk with inside voices, but I guess that's just not gonna happen in this day and age. The top floor had a wonderful exhibit of paintings from different decades. The interactive section was fun, but my son was constantly forced off of whatever he was looking at by the school groups. I wish we had gone on a different day.
  • Very disappointed - - the old museum had wonderful displays detailing the history and time frame of Colorado's development. The displays that are in the "new" museum are more "Disneyland". It's sad to think that History Colorado spent so much money on the building and are not using the collections they have now stored away to advantage. The loss is to the people who visit and of course to Colorado.
  • This place was pretty cool to experience. I love museums and history so they had some very interesting exhibits. For example, I did not know they had Japanese internment camps here and they had a very neat exhibit on that. Also, military gets in free.
  • Had a nice time with my kids here. All the exhibits are kid friendly and well laid out.
  • This is a grandiose and massively expensive taxpayer funded building in search of interesting exhibits. The cost of admission is very high for the content inside. $50 for a family of five. A lot of the exhibits are more something you'd see in a state visitor center and not really "history". You won't find anything to do with the states geology here or much about ecology. The exhibits seem to have a very "manifest destiny" "this land is ours for exploiting" theme.
