There are several hands-on exhibits and several robot toys on display that I remembered from my childhood. I took my grandchildren - it is a little beyond the 2-year old, but the 4-year old enjoyed it.

Been to this museum several times with my grandchildren and years ago with students and just by myself. There is a lovely historical section about the area and one devoted to early astronauts as one came from our town(Vance Brand). The upper floor is well suited for children under the age of 10 and has interactive activities. The changing exhibits... More

I enjoy the Dia de los Muertos exhibit and festivities every year here. I love the sugar skull making and painting for kids, and adults! The altars for loved ones who have passed over are heartfelt, and impressive in their detail and artistry. There are many good exhibits here throughout the year.

As a new resident to Longmont, I was taken by a local family member to see an art exhibit. While the exhibit was modest, the artworks were wonderful. Moreover, the center has a detailed history of Longmont and how it came into existence as an extension of Chicago. It was fascinating and educational.

We have been there numerous times with our kids over the last several years, they have changing, interactive activities for children and our boys are always excited to visit. And as an added benefit, the Longmont Rec Center is right across the parking lot in case there is some remaining physical energy left that needs to be burned off.

The museum is architecturally beautiful and well researched and planned out. Easy to read and understand displays. All ages will enjoy their visit. A must-see when visiting historic Longmont.

We took our grandsons (ages 11 and 8) to the museum last week to experience the robots. Seems they had a pretty good time. They especially liked the water feature outside and they also had fun with the water display inside and damming up water to go to various places like Roosevelt Pool, crops, etc.

This is an intimate museum that will never overwhelm. It has local history and hosts traveling exhibits, from Audubon to Legos. My favorite is the yearly Day of The Dead Exhibit. Day of the Dead is a No Miss event! The little store is a great stop for interesting, cultural and educational gifts. I have not attended any music events... More

Diarama exhibits illustrating western history are interesting and we enjoyed the special exhibit of Remington and Russell painting and sculpture. Interesting tower room with views to the mountains and costume materials for children. The addition of an auditorium and classroom space will enhance this special cultural center.
