The General Store was cool as well. We could look at the prices of every day items back in the 1930's and see the difference between the prices then and now. We could also "purchase" items on a touch screen TV and see the amount of money we spent compared to the amount of money families made in the 30's.
This yellow home is modeled after an actual house in Keota that has been continued to be painted yellow for years by those who's descendants lived there.
The picnic table
There were some very cool touch screen stories!
Silverton Mine Exhibit
There was a dynamite game that we played!
The exhibit about the Japanese Camps in America during WWII.
I was very surprised to learn that there was one of these very camps in Colorado.
The most surprising thing I learned at the museum was that there was a MASSIVE amount of Klu Klux Klan members in Colorado in the 1920's. The information read that they may have had even more members in Colorado ALONE than in ALL of the southern states combined.
An exhibit about the history of skiing in Steamboat Springs!
There was a very cool ski jump simulator where you could stand on the skis and watch yourself jump and land! Dad and I both scored a 300!
An actual olympic medal
More actual olympic medals
The Sand Creek Massacre Exhibit. The history of it is appalling. It was VERY interesting.
This man, Silas Soule was killed for being a remarkably good person. He refused to participate in the massacre.
Lego-rado! The creators made a HUGE Colorado land out of legos! They made a future Colorado, a present Colorado, and an old time Colorado.
My yummy chicken salad sandwich!
This was my yearbook photo! I wanted to make it look authentic, so I didn't smile. HAHA!
I ended up just looking seriously creepy!! I bet that Lizzie Bourden looked like this. HAHA!
