Alumni Association to Host June 22 Event at History Colorado Center

Join the Alumni Association at the History Colorado Center in downtown Denver, Saturday, June 22. The registration deadline is June 14 and space is limited.

The event at the History Colorado Center in downtown Denver Saturday, June 22, begins at 9 a.m. with a continental breakfast and a presentation by history instructor Mary Borg. Borg has taught history at the school for more than 20 years and is the author or co-author of several history books, including Go to the Source: Discovering 20th Century U.S. History Through Colorado Documents.

At 10 a.m., UNC attendees will be the first guests admitted to the museum for the day and will be free to tour the facility at their leisure.

The $110 million center, which opened April 28, brings history to life with $33 million worth of hands-on and high-tech exhibits, including one about the Weld County town of Keota that uses a reproduction of a Model T and video and sound to simulate how it looked, sounded and felt to bounce down a dirt road on the grassy plains in the early 1900s.

Other features of the center include a two-story "media wall" with 132 interlocking LCD screens that in 20 minutes show a 10,000-year video timeline of the state's history and a ski jumping simulator that incorporates video from Steamboat Springs' Howelson Hill.

Tickets for the event, which is open to the public as well as UNC alumni, are $15 for adults, $10 for children 4-12 and free for children 3 and under, and include the continental breakfast and presentation, entrance to the museum and parking.

The deadline for ticket orders is June 14.
