The Colorado History Museum had been the source of information about the American Old West and the culture of the American Indians. The museum was closed in the month of March in 2010. It is done under the plan to move the museum to a new site which is close to its old site.
Currently, the museum is located at 1300 Broadway and its new site is located at 12th & Broadway. The new museum will be named History Colorado Center and its construction began in the year 2009. The History Colorado Center will open in 2010. The museum is operated by the Colorado Historical Society whose name too has changed to History Colorado.
The museum has been the medium to learn about the history and culture of the Colorado State of America. The state was once a home to the gold seekers and gunslingers. The Puebloan Indians were the original inhabitants of the state and the museum highlights the daily lives of these people.
The new museum under construction occupies the total area of 200,000 square foot. Some of the people expect the new design to be more dramatic than the old building of the museum, while others consider the old building to have its own charm. The new museum will have exhibits that will provide information on past, present and future of the state.
The entry to the old building of the museum was free. It remained open from Monday through Saturday from 10 am to 5 pm and from 12 noon to 5 pm on Sunday. The city visitors will now be able to explore the new museum in 2012 only.
