    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.

    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. The Boulder History Museum (currently only open by appointment), is known for putting together fun exhibits such as "Only in Boulder," "Tea to Tofu: Boulder's Natural Food Phenomenon" and "Thirty Years of Rock and Roll," while the small but impressive collection at The Shelby American Collection Museum celebrates the cult-favorite race car with displays that consistently surprise visitors.
