History Museum Takes Interactive, Social Approach
Visitors can take a virtual soar off a historic ski jump, "yearbook" themselves in a 1920s hairdo for a small town high school, become a miner who must set the dynamite correctly to explode, and play a trading game swapping goods at a historic trading fort.
Live performances, hands-on projects, lectures and more will also serve to continually keep spaces alive.
The new History Colorado Center looks to be much more than a museum too. As a source of civic connection and a place for statewide interactive dialogue, the Center will bring educational programming to Colorado communities in new ways that promise to increase awareness, heighten interest and broaden participation with History Colorado. Once the transformation is complete, History Colorado will reach people of all ages and backgrounds, in all parts of the state.
The $110 million History Colorado Center opens to the public on Saturday, April 28, 2012.
