History Colorado Center is FREE for middle and high school students during Winter Break. From December 21 through January 5, all middle and high school students will receive free admission (a savings of $8 to $10) to the History Colorado Center including the newest exhibition, What’s Your Story?, featuring content and themes relevant to civics curriculum, inspiring students to see their peers and themselves as leaders.
Designed for multi-generational audiences, the museum captures the pioneering and individualistic spirit of Colorado with exhibitions and programs.
In What’s Your Story? you’ll meet 101 people who’ve made an impact on Colorado and the world. Come explore your superpower and those of Coloradans past, present, and future.
Find out how they made an impact on our state, whether by fighting school segregation or being a world-class athlete. See how your experience compares to the challenges and opportunities faced by generations of Coloradans before you.
Through one-of-a-kind multimedia experiences, you and your friends can tell the world what’s important to you, and share it on the big screen for all to see. Whatever you care about—the outdoors? becoming an entrepreneur? helping others?—you’ll meet Coloradans who share your passion.
Learn about the Colorado Governor’s Citizenship Medal, then nominate someone you think should win it. See Tommy Caldwell’s rock-climbing shoes and the model of Larimer Square Dana Crawford built when she saved the neighborhood. Make a poster to send your message — you’ll see your creation among more than 75 posters spanning 150 years of Colorado history.
