“A delightful small museum, easily toured in an hour or two.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

Recently my husband and I picked our granddaughter up from middle school and had an hour or so to spend with her. We knew the Global Village had a traveling exhibit called "Birds of a Feather" so we stopped in . We were greeted by a charming volunteer at the desk who explained what the current exhibits were--two permanent and one temporary. The birds exhibit was quite amazing, some gorgeous, some funny, some quirky, but all fascinating.We also enjoyed the permanent exhibits, especially the miniatures from so many different cultures. Hope to go back soon with others of our grandkids. This place is for all ages!

“A lot of the world in a small space”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2013

This fun little museum in downtown Fort Collins is worth an hour or so. There is a "themed" exhibit. . . the one I saw was birds in various forms and from various countries. The previous exhibit was of nativity scenes. There is also an interesting exhibition with miniture houses from around the world and artifacts from many different countries.

“A Hidden Treasure in Old Town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2012

I don't think a lot of people know about this sweet little museum in Old Town Fort Collins. It was pretty empty the day I visited with my husband. It's pretty special, though, with artifacts from around the world brought to Fort Collins by Peace Corps volunteers. There's a really nice display of miniatures that would be fun for kids.

“Outside looks bad, but Inside is Fabulous!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2012

The reason people say that it's a gem and a surprise great experience is because the outside of the building is ridiculously stupid. There is no other way to describe it. It makes no sense, it tells you nothing about the wonderful things inside. The signs are basic and boring. There is nothing that beckons you to discover and learn about these cultures. I think a museum needs to entice you to take a look and expand your world. SO, once you get past that - it is a very nicely researched and displayed museum. They take care to gather an amazing assortment of artifacts on each subject and explain things rather nicely. Have a school group with a day pass? Go to the Global Museum!!

If you are with a group of friends you might take a good 20 minutes coaxing some people in your group inside as, again, the outside does not reveal that it is pretty cool inside. i hope they fix that someday. Good marketing always helps......
