I visited when I was a child and I recently took my nieces back. I was struck by how much really is here for a small museum. It's not just a bunch of replicas or donated junk, but researched history of the city. The fact that children are allowed to experience so much of it hands on is really valuable. I couldn't believe how much my nieces enjoyed the carriage in the front!

When we first moved to CO we were surprised to find a museum in Old Town. Well, at least one that is worth the time to visit. This place is definitely worth a visit. There is a very interesting permanent exhibit on the city's sugar beet industry which was once the primary economic basis for the town. This exhibit ties into a very well done exhibit on life in Loveland during the sugar beet boom years. Upstairs there is some interesting memorabilia on how the city has historically celebrated Valentine's Day. The main gallery hosts travelling exhibits that are of mixed quality, however some are exceptional. If you're interested in the travelling exhibits you can check on-line at the Loveland city website. We usually visit once or twice a year.

Thelayout, arrangement, and quality of the shows are more typical of large museums. National exhibits like that of Chuilly and the Colorado Govern;r's Invitational are just examples of the caliber you will find in the galleries. A few permanent exhibits are well done.

Let's face it, this place is not one of the Smithsonians or The House on the Rock, but it is a nice, quaint museum in downtown Loveland. I visited on the weekend and parking was easy and ample. The best part of the museum is the art gallery which changes periodically. There was also a lot of local history, including the history of the sugar beet industry in Loveland and a homage to the cottage industry of valetine re-mailing. All in all, it's a pleasant way to spend a couple of hours in Loveland. NOTE: The museum is closed on Mondays and closes at 4:00 PM on Sundays.
