While there's little doubt you'll be spending time frolicking outdoors in Boulder's remarkable natural beauty, be sure to save some energy for perusing some of the area's lesser known — but just as stimulating — cultural assets inside Boulder museums.
The Museum of Boulder (opening May 2018) is a great place to start. A fully interactive exploration of Boulder's past, present and future, this new space includes world-class traveling exhibits, the region's Native American history, a children's discovery zone and a rooftop deck. Visit the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art (BMoCA) for an always-provocative selection of contemporary works. And don't miss a trio of museums on the University of Colorado campus, home to the University of Colorado Heritage Center in the school's historic Old Main building, the CU Art Museum and University of Colorado Natural History Museum — all of which are intimate gems worth a peek. Further northeast of town, the Shelby American Collection Museum celebrates the cult-favorite race car with displays that consistently surprise visitors.
