Play Ball! <p>See classic baseball artifacts—from Babe Ruth to the Blake Street Bombers.</p> <p>Treasured memorabilia and iconic photographs bring the past to life through stories that begin on the ball field and echo through American history. Size up your hand against Babe Ruth’s. Find the nails Ty Cobb used to hold his favorite bat together, and admire the glove flashed by Willie Mays to make some of the game’s most memorable catches. See the uniform Joe DiMaggio wore in his final World Series and a receipt for roses he sent to Marilyn Monroe. And much, much more—these are just a few of the one-of-a-kind items on view in Play Ball!</p> <p>Opening with the 2018 baseball season, Play Ball! showcases the Marshall Fogel Collection, one of the greatest sets of baseball artifacts ever assembled outside the Hall of Fame. This celebration of our national pastime is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to celebrate baseball’s storied history in a way you’ve never seen it before.</p> 1200 Broadway Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center

Postcard Colorado <p>Step inside Colorado in a brand-new way! Denver artist Chris Carlson will create four giant interactive postcards for the History Colorado Center atrium. Playful images will be painted on four “cyc walls”—short for “cyclorama,” a curved wall used as a background to suggest unlimited space. Climb Capitol Peak without ever leaving the ground. Pet a bighorn sheep without any danger of being rammed. Ride the Kit Carson County Carousel right here in Denver. And dodge the laser-red eyes of the Blue Mustang statue without driving to the airport.</p> <p>Have someone take your photo as you stand on the cyc wall, then marvel at the 3-D effect of the photo. Be sure to share on social media too! #PostcardCO</p> 1200 Broadway Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center

ZOOM IN: THE CENTENNIAL STATE IN 100 OBJECTS <p>A hundred objects. A hundred portals to the past.</p> <p>Presented by Colorado State University</p> <p>Our newest exhibition has 100 stories to tell. Zoom in on 100 powerful artifacts to see how Colorado became Colorado. Culled from the vast collections of History Colorado, every object on view had a role in shaping our state—from the age of the Paleoindians to Jack Swigert’s Apollo 13 flight suit and beyond. </p> <p>You could never distill Colorado’s rich history into only 100 objects. But the ones we’ve selected, both ordinary and extraordinary, combine into a telling mosaic of the past—and, just maybe, a glimpse into our future.</p> <p>A brand-new space, the Tim Schultz Gallery presented by the Boettcher Foundation, has been created on the museum’s third floor to house the innovative 3,700-square-foot experience. The addition of Zoom In provides another core exhibit for museum visitors to explore. The exhibition joins core exhibits such as Living West, Destination Colorado, and Colorado Stories, giving museum goers a full dose of historically themed exhibits about the state’s past.</p> 1200 Broadway Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center

25 Years of Colorado Rockies <p>This season, Colorado celebrates 25 years of Rockies baseball. Join us for breakfast and an intimate discussion of what it took to bring Major League Baseball to our state—from the creation of the Colorado Baseball Commission and the Metropolitan Stadium Authority to the development of a major league operation. Program host and former Rockies Club Historian Paul Parker will share stories of his 25 years in the organization as he’s joined by Colorado baseball’s key players, including Kathi Williams and Roger Kinney, who’ll share their own remembrances of the team that calls LoDo home.</p> <p>New additions! Panel will also include Bob Gebhard, the first general manager of the Colorado Rockies, and Roger Kinney, former president of Colorado Baseball Association!</p> <p>Plated breakfast includes baseball decorated pastries; Bananas Foster baseball bat; french toast with bourbon maple syrup, bananas and whipped cream; rosemary potatoes; applewood-smoked bacon; and coffee or juice.</p> 1200 Broadway Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center

Putting a Five Story Building Through the Mountain <p>Located near the geographic center of Colorado, the Eisenhower-Johnson Memorial Tunnels extend 1.7 miles beneath the Continental Divide. Cars disappear into one portal and emerge in less than five minutes—and their drivers are more likely to notice vastly different weather conditions on the other side than to think about the political, financial, engineering, and muscle power that made the tunnels happen.</p> <p>Planning and construction spanned four decades starting in the 1930s, when the State Highway Department was barely into its second decade and the country was in the midst of a Great Depression. When the first of the tunnels—originally called Straight Creek—opened in 1973, it marked a turning point for the highway department and helped shape Colorado’s identity as a western state. See historic images from the CDOT photo collection as you take a trip through the growth of Colorado’s early road system, the state highway department, and our interstate highways.</p> 1200 Broadway Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center

Hill's Gold <p>Colorado Territory, 1863: Colorado's gold rush was over. Mining was a shambles. The Civil War still raged and conflicts with Plains Tribes made travel dangerous. Still, Nathaniel P. Hill was captivated by the West and tempted by William Gilpin’s invitation to investigate this land for gold and silver. Against his wife’s wishes, Hill left his family and job as a chemistry professor at Brown University to work for the Colorado Territory’s former governor. The result was nothing short of a revolutionary boost to the fledgling Colorado mining industry and the rerouting of his and his family’s fortunes, eventually leading him to become one of Colorado's early U.S. senators. Join historian Ellen Kingman Fisher as she explores Hill’s challenges and adventures and the impact on his family.</p> 1200 Broadway Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center

Colorado Women Lecture: Pike's Peak or Bust <p>In the early years of the Pikes Peak Gold Rush, men outnumbered women twenty to one, yet the gentler sex played an important role in every aspect of mining life. Join author J.v.L. Bell as she discusses the adventures of well-known frontierswomen like Elizabeth Byers, Augusta Tabor, and Addie LaMont. Life for these early women settlers was difficult, filled with long days of washing clothes, cooking, and running boarding houses, but several established more unusual roles. Elsa Jane Forest took on the guise of a man; Charlotte Card dressed like a man and mined her own claim; and Mary Randal became one of Colorado’s first African American settlers. From papering their walls to washtub panning, these women lived amazing lives and have stories that will make you laugh and bring tears to your eyes.</p> <p> </p> 1200 Broadway Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center

Fort Collins: From Camp Town to City <p>Beginning as a remote Army post in 1862, Fort Collins has evolved over about 150 years to become a vibrant city on the High Plains, a center of education and commerce. Through images and stories, author Barbara Fleming, a Fort Collins native, recounts the city’s colorful history—a past replete with Native Americans, board sidewalks, false-front buildings, a hanging, a rogue stagecoach driver, and indomitable men and women who held on through drought, grasshopper plagues, and more to build a town that ultimately thrived and grew. The story of Fort Collins is the story of the western frontier and the settlement of the West.</p> 1200 Broadway Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center
