I was impressed with the museum. This was my first time visiting and I came to see the special exhibit for the Day of the Dead. It was well done. We then looked at the rest of the museum and I found the permanent exhibit on the history of Colorado and Longmont informative and interesting. I learned a lot. I will keep my eyes out for what the next special exhibit will be.

Just not understanding why this place isn't named the St Vrain museum or Weld/Boulder/any other county museum. There isn't a whole lot just on Longmont. My family lived in the area since the 1800s and I've heard firsthand from generations about the rich and colorful history of this town. So my advice to the museum is to change its name so people don't expect Longmont history for crying out loud. I'd still like to know where all the old artifacts have gone from the days when there were actually historical emphases in the previous incarnation of the museum (the one downtown). Bits and pieces are at the museum today but there's so much more history that could be told.

This fun little museum is nestled at the South East side of Longmont, right next to the Rec Center.
Many exhibits are permanent and free of charge.
The special, traveling, exhibits cost a few dollars.
The permanent exhibits are spread out through the building and mostly cover American and local history.
Definitely fun for all, and sort of hands-on.
The temporary exhibits vary from legos, day of the dead, etc.
Make sure to check out the once-weekly arts and crafts club for young children as well (Discovery Days).
So much fun and with changing themes every week.
In the Summer concerts are held in the outside courtyard.
I definitely recommend a quick visit both for young and old.

Their special shows are always worth attending - fine museum for the small town that Longmont is. The Lego exhibit currently running is a lot of fun for the young at heart.

The museum has a series of small but very interesting exhibits....so if in Longmont, see what is on. Japanese kimonos....Lego structures, quilts, John Audubon's personal items from his trips....never know, but all have been worthwhile.

There is also a nice intro to the history of Longmont, used to educate school children, so lots of hands on displays....and if you climb to the top of the stairs, have a good view to the west, with Mt. Meeker and Long's Peak.

The museum has been free, but there may be a charge for the special exhibits...seems to be changing policies. Fees are small...$5? There is plenty of parking, and the museum is next door to the Longmont recreation center with its water slide and pools.
