The Broomfield Veterans Memorial Museum honors local veterans of all the United States conflicts and peacekeeping efforts, from the Civil War to the present, from all branches of service. The museum not only shares the stories of Colorado veterans, it is a center for veterans to connect, students to learn about our nation’s history, groups to explore the rotating exhibits, and families to honor their loved ones who served in the military.
The museum houses nine rooms of exhibits, a library with over 2,500 history/military books and hundreds of archived videos of veteran interviews, and a multimedia room that seats over 40. The museum is free and open to the public and offers docent-guided or self-guided tours, and, twice a month, a presentation called Coffee and Conversation, where you can hear fascinating stories from local veterans and historians.
The museum is also engaged in local civic events and educational outreach efforts, from local schools to senior care facilities. The museum was founded in 2002 by six late Broomfield-area World War II veterans, whose legacy is now carried forward by a team of volunteers, many of whom are veterans themselves. All are invited to come see the displays and hear the stories.
The museum is located at 12 Garden Center, Broomfield, on the north side of Midway, two blocks east of 287. Hours: Thursday 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.; Saturday 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The Broomfield Veterans Memorial Museum seeks to preserve the memories of America’s military history, strengthen the bonds to the community by facilitating the stories of veterans as supported by displays and artifacts for the benefit and education of generations to come.
A museum that celebrates and honors our veterans’ heritage and works to tell their stories.
