Littleton Colorado Museums
The Denver area is often referred to as an outdoor oasis, and the city of Littleton, Colorado, is no exception. Litleton is located about 10 km southwest of Denver and has a population of about 1.5 million people. Litleton is home to a wide range of activities ranging from recreation and culture to hiking, biking, skiing, snowshoeing, mountain biking and more.
This historic farm features a schoolhouse and a blacksmith's shop, allowing visitors to explore their past in a way that deserves to be recognized as an affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution. Situated on 40 acres adjacent to Ketring Lake, the hotel includes more than 1,000 acres of living history and Littleton area artifacts. Visitors can visit a variety of historic buildings, each representing the 1860s, as well as modern buildings such as the Litleton Public Library.
Children can sign up to learn about the history of the park's geological formations, explore the visitor center to watch a DVD introducing the parks, and view a variety of exhibits such as the Littleton Museum's fossil and artifact collection. Whether you see the animals on the farm or attend one of the many events on the museum grounds, there is something for everyone to experience and enjoy at Littletons Museum.

The museum, located on the first floor of Denver Pavilions, has been in the works for three years and was originally scheduled to open in spring 2020, but has since changed its schedule to allow new artists to exhibit their work. The exhibition is sponsored by the Littleton Fine Arts Board and will be on view at the museum until the end of December 2018, with the exception of a limited number of days in the summer months. The Aspen Art Museum is opening its exhibition "Where we # ve been, where we're at," which is scheduled to be completed by the end of December. A three-story observation tower that offers views of Lowry, Denver and the Front Range will be highlighted by an exhibition called "Rising," originally scheduled to open in March 2020, that will honor Charlie Gates of Colorado as a pioneer of business and aviation legend.
This farm, dating from the 1860s, is a pre-railway era and includes Littleton's original schoolhouse, built in 1865. On 40 hectares you can follow the paths of 19th century farmers, learn how they lived and worked, and experience the history of their farms and farm animals as well as the life of the farm itself.
The Molly Brown House Museum allows visitors to go back in time a century ago and see Denver in 1910. This farm, dating from the 1890s, is particularly interesting because it shows significant advances in technology and transport that have occurred in just thirty years.
