Boulder is known for its innovations and here is somewhere where they attempt to show just how that came about. Environmental, technological and medical thinking all have deep roots here and it's amazing to see how it all started. This old house is where the...More

We've heard this is a great little museum, but have never found it to be open! Our friends highly recommend it but we have never been able to visit it.

Nice but small. Very nice reception person. Focus is on Native American heritage and adverse effects from the coming of the miners, farmers and military. Many pictures, fewer displays. Interesting and it is a reasonable value.

Boulder History Museum is a great small town history museum and is a must visit if you are traveling to or the surrounding Boulder area. I you have kids, you can enjoy Beach Park, a small park with playground next to the museum.

What a warm and welcoming museum, presently housed in a historic Boulder house. The history of Boulder exhibit on the second floor really captures Boulder's past and leaves visitors with some history to ponder in contrast to modern Boulder. Friendly and helpful staff. Good intro...More
