The Henderson Museum is located at Broadway and 15th Street in Boulder, Colorado and is also referred to as the University of Colorado at Boulder Museum of Natural History. The museum is connected to an academic unit of the Graduate School at the university with collections that include over four million objects in botany, geology, entomology, zoology, paleontology, anthropology, and archaeology. The museum is an educational facility that offers programs and activities throughout the year to both children and adults.
Throughout the year, visitors can attend lectures, family days, or guided tours. The galleries are open to the public seven days a week and there is no admission charge. Grad students as well as some undergraduate students at the college participate in labs and out of class activities at the museum. The university offers a Museum and Field Studies Graduate Program for students earning their Master of Science degree in Museum Studies.
Tours at the museum are fun and interactive and offer a way for children and adults to actively participate in the collection they are viewing. Field trip opportunities are available through the museum and group tours of ten or more should be booked in advance through the museum's office staff.
