The angular, modern structure of the History Colorado Center, designed by Tryba Architects, opened in April 2012. Thanks to skylights that mimic the shape of the Rocky Mountains, visitors feel the warmth of Colorado’s famous sunshine as it pools across a map of Colorado made of 234 precast terazzon tiles embedded in the atrium floor. Enjoy the vistas from the south and western sides of the building and follow the Green Trail, which describes how the museum achieved its LEED Gold certification.
