One can never be sure what one will find here, but overall the quality of the presentations of the exhibitions is always excellent. As for the art, some shows are better than others... "taste," like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder

I learned a lot about Boulder by visiting this museum. My favorite part was learning about residents not being too pleased with the hippies when they first came to Boulder in the 60s. Although there could have been more for adults to do, I enjoyed...More
