Mission Statement

The Global Village Museum of Arts and Cultures mission is to foster and celebrate international connections between Northern Colorado and the world through exhibits of folk art, fine arts, and artifacts from around the globe; and to provide international resources and educational opportunities.

Organization History

GVM opened its first museum facility in 2010 in a 115 square foot basement room. In 2011 the Board of Directors, staff, and volunteers established four galleries, collection and archive areas, a Museum gift shop, and staff offices in nearly 6,500 square foot building on Mountain Avenue in Downtown Fort Collins. As the only internationally-focused museum in Colorado, our objective is to bring the world to Northern Colorado. Our international exhibits and programs, which are locally-based and community donated, have won broad acclaim from educators, children, university students, and citizens. The Museum showcases and brings attention to the international nature of our community, and is also a place to preserve and use artifacts to teach about the world.

Since 2011 the Museum has showcased 38 exhibits and hosted more than 29,000 new and returning visitors from 42 states and over 46 countries around the globe. The exhibitions and dynamic educational programs are designed in consideration of the community's interests and work toward building multiculturalism, inspiring curiosity, generating enthusiasm, inciting important conversations about the world, and creating lasting impressions that ultimately fosters preservation, compassion, and tolerance of diverse cultures.

Testimonials

We are proud to have a TripAdvisor 4.5 star rating out of 5 and 54% of our rating is excellent and 46% of our rating is very good. For instance:

"Check out the serving utensils at "Serve it Up" this summer
This is a small nonprofit museum culled from Colorado collections. Children might enjoy the dolls and dollhouses from around the world. We came for the collection of a thousand or so dishes and cookware from around the world, very well organized, displayed and interpreted. There is a small gift shop of global crafts at reasonable prices."

"Diversity of human culture
Exhibits change. We saw A to Z exhibits of artifacts from around the world. Each had an informative description. Docents available to give more info if you desire. Buddhist monks were there the day we visited, preparing for making a sand Mandala. Diverse items on display."
