“Great kids adventure.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2012

This is a great place to bring young kids who you want to introduce to farm animals which wander the grounds. My grandkids chased chickens and petted sheep, goats, cows and horses. There is a working blacksmith shop and a restored 1830 farm house - the kids will be amazed how small it is.

“Free and great for small children!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2012

Something for everyone! Learn the history of Littleton in a hands-on-way. My 3 young children LOVE this museum. We always hit the indoor section first which includes a pioneer kitchen where they can "bake" bread. The acres of outdoor buildings and gardens are always fascinating but their favorite has to be the pig and donkey. And best of all it is free of charge!

“A true gem tucked away in Littleton!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

The history, art and culture of Littleton is lovingly displayed with great care at the Littleton Historical Museum. Kids and adults alike will enjoy the whimsical diversity of the museum displays (including a wonderful interactive area for kids) as well as the TWO living history farms - complete with endearing barn cats who often accompany you as you stroll the grounds. Located on a beautiful parcel adjacent to a lake - the Littleton Historical Museum is a true gem. We were treated to a Smithsonian Institute travelling exhibition of Grand Canyon photos on our visit. It is one of only 700 museums to be fully accredited by the American Association of Museums, and the only Colorado museum that has earned a prestigious Smithsonian Affiliation. Gallup Park - directly across the street from the museum is a great treat for kids!

“Great Outing for the Kids!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2011

This museum offers both a traditional indoor museum, as well as an outdoor immersion experience. There are two living farms on the property: one from the late 1800's and the other from the early 1900s. Both have staff dressed the period and working the farms. There are animals to pet and buildings to explore. Kids love this place! Great way to spend an afternoon!
