This is a new (2012) and contemporary style museum dedicated to the history of Colorado. Everyone in Colorado should visit this and any visitor who wants to understand the opening and development of the West should do so as well. Recently it has installed 50...More

On arrival, we were welcomed and we purchased two seniors admissions ($10). It was suggested that as there were lots of children on the lower two floors, we should start at the fourth level and work downwards. We could understand why. The top two levels...More

As previous reviewers have noted (correctly) that this history museum is well done and interesting, I would rather like to emphasize just how easy it was to get to for a first time visitor from out of town. I took RTD A line from the...More

The new facility is gorgeous. The atrium is a perfect space for events, or a walk around the huge stone map of the great state of Colorado. The caterers are exceptional. Displays change (although some are permanent). The new facility is very kid-friendly and has...More

Loved it! Although Colorado's history doesn't go back far this museum digs it all out and presents it really well with a strong focus on the poor treatment of minorities e.g. the resident Japanese during WW2 and the indigenous Indians....fascinating!

Had a great time with my four year old. The first two floors have wonderful interactive exhibits that the kids loved. We especially enjoyed the Dust Bowl exhibit, Model T and ski simulators, the old-time general store, and the Amache Japanese internment exhibits. Much less...More

I enjoy visiting History Colorado and I often refer visitors there as well. The exhibits are very well presented and interesting. And, there are things of interest for all ages - from little kids through adults.

Check directly with the museum. They were very helpful. We had discount tickets -we bought a package for $25 for three days - discounts and free entrances. So, we did good and saved over the $25 outlay = it may be similar... More
