“A world at Our Fingertips”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2014

Where else in a museum will you find an upside down carved wooden mermaid (known affectionately as maidmer) or a collection of Peace Corps artifacts, or a collection of miniatures that keep children mesmerized. We are fortunate in Colorado to have an outstanding art museum in Denver -- and another In Fort Collins. We have history museums, and a museum about trains, but only in Fort Collins do we have a GLOBAL museum. Although the museum has not been open long, already they have taken us around the world with amazing exhibits from far and near. There is never a line to get in, and the docents are well-informed and anxious to help guests to get the most out of the exhibits. The museum also hosts many special events for adults and children. It doesn't take half a day to see everything; you can slip in a visit and escape into another world for just a bit.

“Small but worth a visit!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2014

Current exhibit (March 2014) is about India. Like all exhibits at this place, it is quite small but very well put together. Another one I liked was the one about the Andes. Exceptionally well put together. Exhibits change every few months. Keep checking.

“Hidden Gem Downtown Fort Collins”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 November 2013

This is a fabulous little museum with rotating exhibits. Watch for changing themes and items. We love to visit here every few months and we always stay for a few hours. The kids and Grandma love it, so this is definitely worth a family visit. We would love to see the nativity collection again during the holidays...

“A hidden treasure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2013

I have lived in Fort Collins for over 10 years and just discovered this hidden treasure. I went to see the special showing of the nativities in Dec. The room with the minis was a treat. I'll go back again.
