    Boulder Museums

    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 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, hyper-local installations, 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 the museums on the University of Colorado campus, home to the CU Art Museum and University of Colorado Natural History Museum — both 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. 

    Looking for something a little different? University Bicycles has a collection of vintage bikes hanging from the rafters, while Neptune Mountaineering has amassed a collection of incredible exploration artifacts (some that have been to the top of Mount Everest) in its shop. And CU's Media Archaeology Lab has a slew of still-working vintage computers and devices that will take you on a trip right down memory lane.
