Where else in a museum will you find an upside down carved wooden mermaid (known affectionately as maidmer) or a collection of Peace Corps artifacts, or a collection of miniatures that keep children mesmerized. We are fortunate in Colorado to have an outstanding art museum in Denver -- and another In Fort Collins. We have history museums, and a museum... More

Current exhibit (March 2014) is about India. Like all exhibits at this place, it is quite small but very well put together. Another one I liked was the one about the Andes. Exceptionally well put together. Exhibits change every few months. Keep checking.

This is a fabulous little museum with rotating exhibits. Watch for changing themes and items. We love to visit here every few months and we always stay for a few hours. The kids and Grandma love it, so this is definitely worth a family visit. We would love to see the nativity collection again during the holidays...

I have lived in Fort Collins for over 10 years and just discovered this hidden treasure. I went to see the special showing of the nativities in Dec. The room with the minis was a treat. I'll go back again.

Recently my husband and I picked our granddaughter up from middle school and had an hour or so to spend with her. We knew the Global Village had a traveling exhibit called "Birds of a Feather" so we stopped in . We were greeted by a charming volunteer at the desk who explained what the current exhibits were--two permanent and... More

This fun little museum in downtown Fort Collins is worth an hour or so. There is a "themed" exhibit. . . the one I saw was birds in various forms and from various countries. The previous exhibit was of nativity scenes. There is also an interesting exhibition with miniture houses from around the world and artifacts from many different countries.

I don't think a lot of people know about this sweet little museum in Old Town Fort Collins. It was pretty empty the day I visited with my husband. It's pretty special, though, with artifacts from around the world brought to Fort Collins by Peace Corps volunteers. There's a really nice display of miniatures that would be fun for kids.

The reason people say that it's a gem and a surprise great experience is because the outside of the building is ridiculously stupid. There is no other way to describe it. It makes no sense, it tells you nothing about the wonderful things inside. The signs are basic and boring. There is nothing that beckons you to discover and learn... More

Our group of friends really enjoyed seeing all the folk art and dolls from around the world with examples of the history and homes of many cultures. The doll collection alone is incredible, from every corner of the globe, expressing cultures and art. The revolving exhibits have been a step into a new world that most of us will only... More
