    I like that this museum put effort into showing Colorado's diversity with its exhibits. The exhibits tell the history of the state as well as its cultural history. They also try to be balanced with their perspectives, i.e. telling both sides of the story.

    Interesting house museum, though the tour route left you at times a little confused about the actual layout - house doubled in size early in its life plus a major interior alteration, so at times you wanted a schematic. You cover a lot of ground, both in terms of family history and objects (many original - last surviving daughter lived there until 1981). Possibly because of that there was a t times both an information overload, but a dearth of knowledge beyond tour training as well about certain objects. No matter really. I'd have liked the lady at reception for the tour itself - our guide was a little less than enthusiastic and probably at the end of a very long day - in need of a beer (and a shower lol). Aside from the gift shop stock, I would call this more of a home for socialite women (the brother married rich and moved away), than a home of historically socially significant women.

    The historic artifacts are mostly things you'd see in other museums of the West, though they do add to the story of the Black Americans who lived with them. For me, the best part of this interesting little museum was the rows of photos that line the walls. Be sure to read the captions; they'll give you a much better idea of the peoples' lives and achievements.

    This is a small art museum that celebrates Latin-American artists through rotating cultural exhibits. During our visit, the thematic strand was surviving domestic abuse in the Latin community. There were many works done by local artists around this theme. There is a small gift shop on site of pieces donated to the museum and proceeds go to the charity tied to the artistic theme of the season.

    i spent a wonderful hour or so viewing the exhibits, talking with Penny, the Education Director, about their programs. Really enjoyed the art, especially the oral histories on video, very rich experience of Jewish culture!
