Free CU Museums

Did you know that there are three free museums within a 5 minute walk of our theatres? Come early before dinner and make time to explore:

  • The CU Museum of Natural History is so close that it forms the backdrop to the Rippon stage. It features exhibits about anthropology, animals, and special areas for kids.

  • The CU Heritage Center on the third floor of the Old Main building features an amazing LEGO® model of the Mary Rippon Outdoor Theatre (and the rest of the campus) and historical exhibits about CU.

  • The CU Art Museum is close to the Euclid Avenue Parking Garage and features outstanding art from throughout human history. It will also be the site of the First Folio display August 9 to 31, 2016.

Admission to all of these museums is free, however most close at 4 or 5 p.m.
