  • So glad we saw the mining exhibit. Enjoyed the humor of the Tommyknockers in an otherwise dismal line of work. I don't know how many visitors even find the ski jump simulator, but we're glad we did - ...  read more »

  • Colorado history with a touch of class. They don't dumb it down for kids or adults, and the interactive exhibits are clever, like the ski jump and mining job. Beautiful halls are dressed in adobe, stone or wood. The dustbowl exhibit is a must see!! I cannot find anything to criticize here, it's a jewel in Denver's crown.
  • Great place. I attended a special event there on the 4th floor and loved the food. I think the big, interactive "steampunk" machine on the ground floor that you can drag around a huge map of Colorado is fun, educational and engaging to any age.
  • Truly a magnificent commission building to support our art and cultures of our cherished Heritage of our history of the United States of America and to the Republic for what we all stand for. 2014 results showed 359 million dollars for this structure to be commissioned.
  • If you like history you need to visit here. They have hands on exhibits mixed with video and of course plenty to read also. I thought they did a good job of handling Native American Indian and Chicano perspectives.
  • I was disappointed with the overall experience. It lacked the feel of the past and omitted many parts of Colorado's history. The only exhibit that taught me anything was the Chicano Movement displays and information.
