The Littleton Museum is one of Colorado's most unique museums, a place where visitors can step into the past and have history come alive. It is also a site for research and education.
The museum features four galleries: the Permanent Exhibition Gallery depicts, through artifacts and text, the "Littleton Story" from its early beginnings to the present. Through a Changing Exhibition Gallery, the museum displays artifacts from its collections or presents traveling exhibitions from the Smithsonian Institution or other museums. The Fine Arts Gallery hosts original art and photography shows sponsored by the Littleton Fine Arts Committee, as well as other art shows.
For our younger visitors and their parents, the Kids' Connection provides interactive hands-on exhibits in a fun learning environment.
Additionally, the museum has a Research Center (by appointment only) which stores historical photographs, manuscripts, maps, and books dealing with area history, art, and antiques. A Lecture Hall is where the museum's adult lecture series, winter concert series, and other public programs are held. The Education Wing is for school groups and workshops. In keeping with the museum's mission, the Museum Gift Shop sells educational toys, books for children and adults, jewelry, t-shirts, note cards, and gifts for friends and family.
The Littleton Museum is accredited by the American Association of Museums and is the first museum in Colorado to be recognized as an Affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution.
