  • I was pleasantly surprised by how great this place is. It's beautiful, clean, friendly and on the day we went, quiet! It was a Saturday! It's interactive too so my 6 year old loved it. She went 2 days in a row! Loved all the Colorado info
  • The History Colorado Center is a pretty museum with a bunch of interactive exhibits where you can let your kids pretty much run free. It does have 4 floors of exhibits so it can take several hours. It covers everything from farming in the east to mining in the west to native peoples. I wish it had a few more exhibits and a little more depth to some subjects, but I really liked it.
  • Great museum all about colorado. Great for older kids but adults can have a great time as well. I learned something! Plan on spending 2+ hours there. Parking garage located next door. If you get a membership it's almost the cost of the ticket plus you get passes to Georgetown railroad that are valued more than the membership!
  • Great for young school-aged kids. Some of the recreated settings with audio narration were really good for all ages, especially the Japanese internment camp and the dust bowl.
  • Want to know when Colorado became a territory? Want to know who settled the state? Want to know what was the first National Park? Want to know who first explored Colordo? Want to know about the Gold Rush or why the Mint is based in Denver? Who was Pike? Look on Wikipedia I guess. You won’t find history here. Instead you will find experiential and topic based exhibits aimed at Elementary/Junior High Students. The exhibits could be condensed to one floor of this massive building. The Dust Bowl exhibit was good. So was the exhibit on the Red Rocks amphitheater. Overall the museum was a disappointment. We did it an about an hour.
