Highlights

  • Explore 100 powerful artifacts that illustrate how Colorado became Colorado in Zoom In: The Centennial State in 100 Objects. Culled from the vast collections of History Colorado, every object on view had a role in shaping our state--from the age of the Paleoindians to Jack Swigert's Apollo 13 flight suit and beyond.
  • Find inspiration with a look at the artistic side of snowboard design. Colorado artisans including Never Summer, Donek, Weston, Meier, and High Society will fill the History Colorado Center atrium with 26 Colorado-themed snowboards in The Art of the Board. Drop into a half-pipe photo op with the interactive "cyc wall" by artist Chris Carlson. Short for “cyclorama,” the wall forms a curved background that suggests unlimited space—have someone take your photo, then marvel at the 3-D effect. Open through March 31, 2019.
  • Hear the story of Colorado’s longest continuous residents, told in their own voices in Written on the Land: Ute Voices, Ute History. Take a journey to iconic Colorado places the Ute people call home. You’ll see traditional arts, gorgeous photography, and contemporary video showing how Ute people have adapted and persevered through the centuries. Witness the tragic loss of Ute homelands and see efforts to keep Ute culture and language alive today.
