History Colorado Center
Documenting the colourful history of Colorado and the stories of those who lived here, the History Colorado Center brings to life the history of cowboys and gunfighters, Native Americans, miners and gold panners, explorers, buffalo hunters, wagon trains and railroads. The museum is hugely innovative, blending technology with fascinating artefacts: explore an enormous map of the state with a storytelling time machine, grab a headlamp and enter a hard-rock mine, traverse the plains in a Model T, then soar off the world's first ski jump. Exhibits include portrayals of life in 19th century Denver, Buffalo Soldiers and the Mesa Verde cliff.
