“An engaging museum visit (every time I go!)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

What I love most about this museum is the wing that is devoted to the history of sugar beet farming. The displays, journals. images and stories make you realize how much Northern Colorado prospered when sugar beet farming was at it's prime.

The next best thing I love about this museum is the display of rivers and mountains located upstairs. If you live in the area, you must visit this display to get a good appreciation for the vast channels of rivers, irrigation canals and water flow. You'll also get a good history of the Big Thompson flood.

“Impressive for a small museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

I visited when I was a child and I recently took my nieces back. I was struck by how much really is here for a small museum. It's not just a bunch of replicas or donated junk, but researched history of the city. The fact that children are allowed to experience so much of it hands on is really valuable. I couldn't believe how much my nieces enjoyed the carriage in the front!

“An Exceptional Small Town Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

When we first moved to CO we were surprised to find a museum in Old Town. Well, at least one that is worth the time to visit. This place is definitely worth a visit. There is a very interesting permanent exhibit on the city's sugar beet industry which was once the primary economic basis for the town. This exhibit ties into a very well done exhibit on life in Loveland during the sugar beet boom years. Upstairs there is some interesting memorabilia on how the city has historically celebrated Valentine's Day. The main gallery hosts travelling exhibits that are of mixed quality, however some are exceptional. If you're interested in the travelling exhibits you can check on-line at the Loveland city website. We usually visit once or twice a year.

“Surprise in a small package”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

Thelayout, arrangement, and quality of the shows are more typical of large museums. National exhibits like that of Chuilly and the Colorado Govern;r's Invitational are just examples of the caliber you will find in the galleries. A few permanent exhibits are well done.
