Greeley Museums bring history alive—sometimes quite literally. The best example is Centennial Village, an 8-acre living heritage museum.
Immaculately restored land, historic homes and businesses, and time-swept citizens can be enjoyed at this museum. But though the seasonal city is the antique jewel in this historical tiara, it's hardly the only chance to learn about the past. The Greeley History Museum preserves the heritage of the area through exhibitions and programs, along with permanent and temporary collections spanning the three floors of galleries. The Meeker Home Museum offers a look inside the lives of the Meeker family, who founded Greeley with a vision of a utopian future, while the White-Plumb Farm Learning Center offers visitors agricultural hands-on learning experiences.
Starting in 1919, author and collector Harold Marion Dunning began assembling artifacts and stories about Loveland’s pioneers. By 1938, he had built up enough of a collection to start a history museum in a converted garage. Today, Loveland Museum is both an art and history museum that encompasses more than 30,000 objects. Most are displayed in interactive historical exhibits where visitors can discover how Great Western Sugar churned out its namesake or sit on one of mountain man Mariano Medina’s saddles.
The museum's trio of art galleries brings world-class art to Loveland with various exhibits, renowned artists such as Pablo Picasso, Dale Chihuly, Salvador Dali, Wayne Thiebaud, and Francisco Goya, and a gallery dedicated to contemporary artists. This gallery highlights different artists or themes roughly every 8–12 weeks, and the artists themselves frequently stop by to give lectures on everything from their inspirations to whether they could take Pablo Picasso in a fight. The artist’s talks are among many classes and programs hosted by Loveland Museum, which include kids’ art classes and historical lectures from visiting scholars.
