Black American West Museum

If you want to get a sense of the African-American experience in Denver as well as the wild west, this museum is a must-see. Do not underestimate its size, as it contains so many important national and local historical gems. Including a video about an all-black settlement in Colorado that is now a ghost town. As for the odd operating hours, that is mainly because it is volunteer run, but if you’re able to work it, into your schedule you will not regret it.
