With 11 museums and historic sites across the state, History Colorado offers an abundance of ways to be educated and entertained. From new exhibitions that expand the notion of how museums can present history, to installations that celebrate the diverse cultures and natural beauties of Colorado, opportunities abound for visitors to interact and immerse themselves in the past so they can better appreciate the present. Each of History Colorado’s sites is located within an hour and a half of a national park, a historic railroad, or in the heart of a cultural center, making them incredible add-ons to group travel to provide historical context in both rural and urban Colorado.
