Summer Camp

Find out what goes on behind the scenes in a large history museum! Campers will become “employees” of the museum and travel back in time to learn Colorado’s most fascinating stories. More info about Summer Camp

Story Time

Bring your 2 – 5 year olds to for story time in our Destination Colorado exhibit and learn about farms, cowboys, and animals.  We’ll read a story, then have play time in the exhibit before the museum opens.  More info here.
