Arts, Culture & Humanities
The Friends support the Estes Park Museum as it preserves, shares, and cultivates a passion for the unique history of Estes Park.
In the past four years, visitation to the museum gallery has increased by 73% from 6,535 to 11,277. The number of programs offered in the past year increased 50% from the previous year, from 56 to 84 programs.
The Friends recently funded renovations for two new, interactive permanent exhibits, the purchase of environmental data loggers for all museum buildings and areas, and acquisitions for the museum's permanent collection.
The Friends have pledged $100,000 for the design of a future Collections & Research Facility with a goal of breaking ground at the beginning of 2019.
