We are at 9601 Henderson Road in Brighton – right in front of the Riverdale Regional Park & Fairgrounds. Our business hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
(Hours are subject to change at any time, call ahead!)
Admittance to the History Museum building is free; however, we do recommend calling ahead to ensure the building is opened -- sometimes it is closed if staff is working in another area. Also, groups of 5 or more are required to call ahead. 303-659-7103.
To tour the other eight buildings, the cost is $4 for adults, $3 for seniors and children 12 and younger. You must be on a guided tour to go in the other buildings. Tours are generally at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. and reservations are encouraged (we can't guarantee tours are available without reservations). Please allow 60-90 minutes for the tour.
Everyone is encouraged to call ahead before coming out so we can ensure a museum representative or a guide is available. Please also call ahead during or after heavy snowfall to be sure we are open and able to give tours.
2019 Closures: The museum will be closed Saturday, May 25, and Thursday, July 4. We will also be closed for the holidays Nov. 28-Dec. 2 and Dec. 21, 2019 through Jan. 6, 2020.
We know our property is photogenic and the sculptures and buildings make great backdrops for professional and hobby photographers. However, we do charge for commercial and wedding shoots, and we ask for a donation for everything else. Contact us at 303-659-7103 or to learn more about our photo policy, pricing and to schedule your photo shoot.
Please note that photographs can only be taken during our business hours, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Coming onto our property when we are not open is trespassing. Thank you for your understanding.
