History Exhibit & Tours

Did you know that Boulder’s Colorado Chautauqua, a National Historic Landmark (NHL), is one of the few chautauquas in continuous use since its founding in 1898? Join us in the Chautauqua Cafe for a look at the past 125 years of Chautauqua! This exhibit features historic photographs from the “125 Years at the Heart of Boulder” exhibit, previously shown at the Museum of Boulder.

This event will also feature history tours, stay tuned for times!
