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

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

Inside the Orchestra's Tiny Tots Performances <p>Tiny Tots gets children truly inside the orchestra by seating the audience on the floor and surrounding them with a 30+ piece orchestra.
