Link to Executive Summary
Nearly every community in Colorado has its own museum. Except Denver. Is it time for that to change? With case studies as benchmarks and a survey of potential visitors, this initial feasibility study provides a basis for assessing the viability of a new Museum of Denver and imagining what it could be. The initial findings suggest that broad community support exists for a Museum of Denver, offer guidance on interpretive themes Denverites would like to explore through the museum, and concluded that the Museum of Denver could be a successful addition to the city's already-rich cultural fabric.
