Yesterday I drove up to Denver for the day and took in the new (opened last weekend) History Colorado Museum. The building is stunning, both inside and out, but right now I would suggest people delay visiting until more displays are in place (apparently lots of people agree with that...there probably weren't more than 50 people at the museum midday).

Some displays seems a little superficial, but I give the museum credit for not ignoring the uglier aspects of Colorado history -- the Sandcreek Massacre, the takeover of the state government by the KKK, and Camp Amache.

I think waiting until late fall or early winter, when a number of new displays are opened is wise...unless you just want to enjoy the new building's architecture. The entry fee is $10 for adults.

Thanks for the tip Phetaroi! And I agree with you regarding the uglier aspects. Any states history needs to be told completely regarding the good, bad, and the ugly. I'll give it a few months and then pay it a visit.

I didn't know there was a new history museum. I remember going to one a few times in downtown Denver.
