Colorado History Museum to Open in 2012

History Colorado announced that Denver’s newest cultural attraction, the History Colorado Center, will open to the public on Saturday, April 28, 2012. Designed to ignite imaginations of all ages about Colorado history, this new state history museum and hub for civic engagement creates a rich experience for visitors through exhibits and programs that will blend technology, media, environments and artifacts.

“The History Colorado Center is more than a new museum—its development served as the impetus to transform the 132-year-old Colorado Historical Society into History Colorado and launch the organization into a new era,” said Ed Nichols, History Colorado President and CEO.

A planned expansion by the Colorado Judicial Department precipitated the move of the Colorado History Museum that was located at 13th Avenue and Broadway in Denver—an opportunity that board of directors and staff seized to rebrand as History Colorado and develop an all-new flagship facility and museum—the History Colorado Center.

“The History Colorado Center will be a place for self-discovery, inspiration, scholarship and fun,” he said. “Our goal is to meet and then exceed the expectations of a savvy, modern, museum-going audience with original high-tech and hands-on interactive multimedia along with authentic artifacts and evocative stories of Colorado’s diverse people.”

As a new Smithsonian Affiliate, the History Colorado Center is sure to make the “must see” list for Denver visitors, history buffs, families — anyone who is attracted to the allure that is Colorado.

The History Colorado Center is located at 1200 Broadway in Denver’s Golden Triangle Museum District and Civic Center cultural complex.
