“A Gem of an Historical Site”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

A Living History is portrayed by "residents" of the 1860s and 1890s farms. Beautiful presentation of Littleton history and history of the southwest. Smithsonian designation.

“Interesting exhibit on the Mapuche”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2012

Great grounds to walk around with animals, original buildings with re-enactors. The museum has a good history of Littleton plus rotating exhibits. We enjoyed the current Mapuche exhibit as well as the "Own a Piece of Art" in Nov 2012. Their gift shop has some nice items that are reasonably priced.

“A living picture of life years ago”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2012

The museum itself has rotating art exhibits and a permanent exhibit of life in Littleton through the years. The building is surrounded by a 19th century farm with barns, corralls, etc. and the animals that inhabit them. There are also farm houses and a one-room school. An absolute treat! I go there many times a year. And it's FREE!

“One of the best "small" museums in the Denver area”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2012

This museum does the Littleton area proud, with interesting and interactive exhibits. What really sets it apart is the homestead and farm area, which includes lots of animals and pioneer buildings lovingly restored and occupied with enthusiastic volunteers. Our kids have seen blacksmiths at work, farmers collecting eggs - nothing like holding a warm egg just out of the chicken! - and have even gotten to milk cows. There are parks right next door that are great for picknicking and playing. Highly recommended!

“Unique, great for different ages, donation only!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2012

This is one of my favorite places to take kids or meet adults for a fun walk. There are animals, kid friendly museum activities, special events, real life stuff like a blacksmith. It is free, but please donate to keep this heritage going!
