Denver Itinerary for Speakers

Greetings TBEX Speakers!

Welcome to the Mile High City!

We have a number of activities going on today and we hope you will join us for as many as you like.  You’re free to come to one – or all!   So we can get head counts, if you know your schedule, we would appreciate knowing which events you’d like to attend.

1:00 p.m. Tour of the History Colorado Center

Join us in the lobby of the museum at 12th and Broadway.   www.historycoloradocenter.org

The new $110 million History Colorado Center opened on April 28, 2012 as an experiential museum that makes history fun. Soar off a 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.

2:30 pm. Tour of Clyfford Still Museum

Join us in the lobby of the Museum at 13th and Bannock (adjacent to Denver Art Museum). www.clyffordstillmuseum.org
