  • The information about the Utes - historically and currently was moving and informative. I also liked the 100 objects from Colorado and the beautiful photographs from all across Colorado. The long-standing exhibit about the eastern Colorado town is really cool: it really appealed to my daughter and her friends when they were kids. Occasionally there are awesome information sessions as well. As a family, we came to see one about raptors.
  • Had a great time. Ages 37, 36, 19, 13, 11, 7, 5, and 4 year old, all had a blast. We spent 4 hours there, could easily stay longer but now we have a reason to return. We left for lunch and returned without a hassle. No private parking, parked on street and kept up with meter.
