If you want to get a sense of the African-American experience in Denver as well as the wild west, this museum is a must-see. Do not underestimate its size, as it contains so many important national and local historical gems. Including a video about an all-black settlement in Colorado that is now a ghost town. As for the odd operating hours, that is mainly because it is volunteer run, but if you’re able to work it, into your schedule you will not regret it.
What an amazing collection of history that no one living in this area should miss. It is filled with little known facts and history of black people who changed the world. Don’t miss the video downstairs. The curators are knowledgeable, professional and have first hand experiences to share. This is a rare opportunity to learn what isn’t taught in school.
