History Colorado Center


Located in Denver's cultural and civic center, History Colorado is a new visitor destination dedicated to learning. The museum is designed as a thought-provoking center for civic conversation in an environment that encourages an inspirational journey into the future by understanding the past.

Its architecture evokes the essence of Colorado: beautiful surroundings, diverse people and unique places. Natural, native colors reflect the variety of the Western landscape, and interior elements echo Colorado's open spaces using abundant local materials. The project's submittal for LEED-Gold certification is a testament to the team's focus on sustainability and energy efficiency.
