1 p.m. Tour: HISTORY AS YOU’VE NEVER SEEN IT BEFORE

History Colorado CenterThe new $110 million History Colorado Center is an experiential museum that makes history fun. Soar off the world’s first ski jump in Steamboat Springs; don a headlamp and descend into a mine; bump across the plains in a Model T Ford; or push a “Jules Verne-like Time Machine” over the Rockies. Whether you spend time with Chief Yellow Wolf, Kit Carson or Barney Ford, expect history like you’ve never seen, heard or experienced it before.

2:30 p.m. Tour: THE MOST FAMOUS ART COLLECTION YOU’VE NEVER HEARD OF

Clyfford Still Museum

Clyfford Still is the most famous American artist that few people have ever heard of – until now. The Clyfford Still Museum, which opened Nov. 2011, celebrates the works of this revolutionary abstract expressionist in a stunning museum devoted exclusively to his art. Some 22 cities competed for the honor of owning this collection – come see why Denver won.

4 p.m. Tour: HIGH FASHION AT HIGH ALTITUDE

Direct from shows in Paris and Madrid, Yves Saint Laurent: The Retrospective, on display through July 8, is an exhibition featuring 200 of his vintage outfits, photographs, drawings, and films that illustrate the development of Saint Laurent’s style. The Denver Art Museum is the only U.S. venue for this panorama of 40 years of haute couture creativity.
