Opened in 1900, this museum is now one of the largest in the US, housing exceptional collections of fossils, minerals and cultural artifacts, including the largest gold nugget ever found in Colorado (135 ounces). Other interesting exhibits include the Prehistoric Journey, a 3.5-billion-year timeline that depicts the history of life on earth, and dioramas presenting the flora and fauna of the Rocky Mountains and other countries such as South America and Africa.
