If you are a history buff, especially for the 50's-60's this place is a final resting location for many old structures from when Lakewood was much smaller. Quite a few building from old Colfax Blvd have been saved here. Also quite a few farming outbuildings.

We have attended a number of luncheons/ lectures here and they have all been very nice. Home made lunch provided by volunteers and good lectures on a variety of topics from the history of skiing in Colorado to the history of downtown Denver.

This was a nice little place. I think it might be more exciting for children, but as with everything we do, we enjoyed what it had to offer. The price was ok, not for what they had to see, but to know it keeps it preserved for future generations.

The Lakewood Heritage Center is like a little walking history. Part of a beautiful park near Belmar, you can walk along a virtual Colfax Avenue, like you would walk down "memory lane". There is also a small museum, and if you select your visit's date right, you can visit at a time when there are guided tours, and other fun... More

You can see lots of 19th century and mining museums in Colorado, but NOT a 20th century museum. There are several buildings on the property, majority brought in and restored. They offer tours twice at day at 11 and 2 so you can see the inside of the buildings. I suggest going during a special event like Cider Days where... More

I walked from my hotel to Belmar Park area, looking for this centre in particular. It is such a lovely location, especially near the lake where you can see huge birds nests high in the trees on a little island. What was awesome is that many of the buildings in the outdoors centre are re-located houses, shops and even an... More

You can enjoy the park setting, go to the gift shop (really imaginative, not the typical stuff) and even a show. Don't miss the wonderful Holiday Sale in Nov or early Dec.

The Lakewood Heritage Center is a 20th century museum located in the Belmar area. There are a variety of historic structures including the Valentine Diner and the 20th century schoolhouse. The 20th Century Emporium, a museum store offers interesting collectables and gift items featuring products popular from the 1940's through the 1980's. In addition, there is a summer concert series... More
