Hi all! Just want to let you know about some upcoming Colorado Free Days going on this weekend.
The Denver Art Museum offers free general admission on the first Saturday of the month so this coming Saturday , September 6th , is your next opportunity. Unless otherwise noted, exhibitions are included with general admission.
The Denver Art Museum was founded in 1893 as the Denver Artists’ Club, it is one of the largest art museums between Chicago and the West Coast, with a collection of more than 70,000 works of art divided between 10 permanent collections including African, American Indian, Asian, European and American, modern and contemporary, pre-Columbian, photography, Spanish Colonial, textile, and western American art.

Denver Museum of Nature & Science, located in City Park is hosting their free day this coming Monday, September 8th. For a full list of current exhibitions you can check out while you are there click here.
The Museum of Nature & Science has a very interesting history. Founded in 1900, its origins back more than a hundred years to one man’s efforts and a little log cabin tucked away in the mountains. In 1868, pioneer and naturalist Edwin Carter arrived in Breckenridge, Colo., and devoted himself to his true love-the birds and mammals of the Rocky Mountains. Carter soon assembled one of the most complete collections of Colorado fauna and displayed his specimens in his log cabin home, dubbed the Carter Museum. As word spread of the Carter collection, the need became apparent for a larger fireproof building to preserve and display his growing natural history collection. Hence the now Denver Museum of Nature & Science.
