From Chief Niwot to the Colorado Chautauqua, Boulder's fascinating history is unraveled here in the permanent “Storymakers” exhibit on the second floor of the 1899 Harbeck-Bergheim House in southwest Boulder. The museum also features one or two temporary exhibits every year; the 2014 slate included a retrospective on the evolution of outdoor apparel in the notoriously active city. Expect to spend 30 minutes here, or more for serious history buffs.
