The Broomfield Veterans Memorial Museum is enjoying more space since its expansion into the garden level of its building at 12 Garden Center. Thanks to generous support from the City and County of Broomfield, the veterans museum was allowed to take over the space previously occupied by Broomfield FISH. Following some renovations, the move was completed in the summer of 2018.
With the addition of another floor, the museum has added a larger meeting and presentation room, an expanded library and research room, and more space to store artifacts and museum collections. In the existing upstairs space, the museum will expand its current exhibits and bring in additional displays for visitors to enjoy.
The addition has been a long-awaited opportunity for the growing museum. In 2001, the founders of the veterans museum moved into one room in the upstairs and slowly grew its operations to fill the entire floor. The added space from the lower level will allow the museum to continue its growth and serve its mission of educating others of Colorado’s military history while connecting with veterans and sharing their stories.
This fall, the museum will host an official open house for everyone to see its newly renovated and enlarged space.
