There is some wonderful art here, and some spectacular artifacts. We all enjoyed the huge map of Colorado on the ground floor which you can admire from the top story.

Nice interactive displays & large museum. Took between 2-2 1\2 hours to go through it. I am extremely big history buff and these displays really peaked my interest.
