A Little Gem
Aug 2021
This museum is a little gem. It contains two permanent exhibits and two that change. One room was stuffed with little minatures--from elaborate doll houses of all types to gas stations, stores, farm scenes, et. One could have spent the whole day in this room. Another rrom had a temporary exhibit of types of containers used all over the world.

The staff is very friendly and lets people get closer to objects than is often the case in museums, and they have exhibits and items specifically to encourage children to explore the world.

Terrific discovery!
Sep 2020
The brewing exhibit was very informative and made learning fun! What's not to love about beer? :-) We could have spent days looking at the permanent exhibits; a compact space that had much to see and learn about. Peter and Bridget had valuable insights on the exhibits. We look forward to future visits.

A happy find!

We have lived in Fort Collins for 3 and a half years and did not know about this museum! It is deceptively large with a lot of really neat displays and exhibits. We really enjoyed the nativities and festivals of light exhibit! Go here if you get the chance. Reasonable admission and friendly staff.

The permanent collection is diverse and amazing. Make sure to read about the history of the collection. The seasonal collections are always outstanding and well thought out. This hidden gem should be on everyone's "rainy day fun" list.

Full of Interesting Items!

While visiting my in-laws in Colorado, we took in this great museum. While it appears small on the outside, it’s actually chuck full of several rooms with interesting and diverse collections. My 80+ in-laws were able to enjoy the coziness of the museum and the way it allows the visitor options to learn about other cultures. The Hawaiian exhibit was very good as were the small houses and assorted puppets.
This museum is definitely worth looking at it - plus it’s super reasonable to visit!

The current GVM exhibit on Hawaii brings our 50th state's charm and culture to all in N. Colorado. Wanna hear old style Hawaiian music on a vintage Victrola?See more Hawaiian shirts than Don Go ever owned?
Stop in Tues.-Sat., 11am-5pm and be transported to the shores of Waikiki!

Charming museum.
Jul 2018 • Family
This small museum holds so many treasurers. There were five in our group of a wide variety of ages and we all had a great time. All the staff people we met were so nice. Lots of fun searching for gnomes amongst all the miniatures. We will go back next time we are in Fort Collins.

Interesting View of the World!

I can't tell you how many times I passed this place on my visits to Fort Collins BUT NEVER gave this place a second thought. I read about it on line and I decided to stop in while I had a business visit.

There are rotating exhibits for several months of the year. Currently, there's a lovely display of utensils and kitchen implements from around the world. It's very tastefully done. Unfortunately, MOST of the exhibits are hands off although they look SO beautiful to handle.

Other international exhibits include doll houses of international dwellings. You could get lost in the displays for hours going to other countries. I'd recommend the place for ALL ages.

This is a small nonprofit museum culled from Colorado collections. Children might enjoy the dolls and dollhouses from around the world. We came for the collection of a thousand or so dishes and cookware from around the world, very well organized, displayed and interpreted. There is a small gift shop of global crafts at reasonable prices.
