We are working on updating our exhibits to honor more veterans and utilize better interpretation and technology to share their stories. Please check back as we post updates and exciting upcoming exhibit news!
Our permanent exhibits highlight Colorado’s role throughout U.S. military history by presenting innovative displays centered around individuals’ stories. Displays cover the Civil War, Colorado Frontier, Spanish-American War, World War I, World War II, Cold War, Korean War, Vietnam War, and the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
Exhibit Series: FOREFATHER VETERANS
Current exhibit: Dwight D. Eisenhower and the Colorado Connection (1890-1969)
Dwight D. Eisenhower is most known for his leadership as a five-star general in the United States Army and supreme commander of the Allied Expeditionary Forces in Europe. He also served as the 34th president of the United States from 1953 to 1961. However, many don’t know about the strong connection Eisenhower had to Colorado, thanks to his marriage to Colorado resident, Mamie Geneva Doud.
The Broomfield Veterans Memorial Museum currently has a special exhibit dedicated to Eisenhower that will cover the life of Eisenhower in a series of four exhibits. Come check out the in-depth history of Eisenhower and his ties to Colorado.
