Expect a “Rocky Mountain High” when you visit the History Colorado Center which reopens on June 22, 2020.
The History Colorado Center, closed to the public since March 12 because of the coronavirus, is reopening June 22 with an exhibit on John Denver that includes a soundtrack, as well as concert footage, artifacts such as an all-denim ski suit and handwritten lyric sheets, and photo ops with life-size Denver cutouts.
Prior to visitation, visitors must buy tickets and members reserve slots in advance for specific times. Among other precautions aimed at keeping COVID-19 in check, visitors older than 3 must wear a face covering. Areas where touching items had been encouraged, such as the Keota Barn, will remain closed for now. Drinking fountains also are off-limits, so bring water. The center’s Café Rendezvous will be open and following the coronavirus restrictions placed on restaurants.
The center began offering online programming days after ending in-person visits. Large gatherings such as lectures remain online only.
