Visited on a week day but while schools were still on winter break. Thankfully not very crowded. Covers many aspects of Colorado history quite throughly and in an interesting manner.

Great museum to bring the whole family. There are about 3 levels of fun and interesting facts. There is an onsite grill restaurant and a gift shop.

Surprised by the exhibits and information that was on display-excellent! Being Colorado natives it was great to learned several new things about Colorado which we used this summer when we traveled to different areas of the state. We love the map on the floor.
