Broomfield Veterans Museum Back Open

The Broomfield Veterans Museum reopened in February and resumed its mission: to honor local veterans of all the United States’ conflicts and peacekeeping efforts from the Civil War to the present, in all branches of service, by telling their stories.


The museum houses nine rooms of exhibits, a military history library of over 2,500 volumes, and a small auditorium that hosts presentations by veterans and historians. It is free and open to the public and offers docent-guided or self-guided tours.


The museum is still—with virus precautions of course—a center for veterans to connect, students to learn about our nation's history, individuals or groups to explore the rotating exhibits, and families to honor their loved ones who served in the military.


The virus has curtailed many of the its outreach activities so far, but the museum has resumed its Coffee and Conversation speaker series—a twice-monthly presentation by a veteran or historian in the auditorium. These talks are scheduled for the second and fourth Saturday of each month and start at 10 AM.


The museum was founded in 2003 by six late Broomfield-area World War II veterans, whose legacy is now carried forward by a team of volunteers, many of whom are veterans themselves. All are invited to come see the displays and hear the stories.


The museum is located at 12 Garden Center, Broomfield, on the north side of Midway, about a quarter mile east of Wadsworth (287). Hours: Thursday 10 AM to 2 PM; Saturday 9 AM to 3 PM. Mask required. Phone number: 303-460-6901; website, email
