I felt that the museum did a wonderful job of portraying Longmont's past, current, and future. Much more sophisticated yet fun than I envisioned.

This is a great place to take the family to get out of the heat on a hot summer day. Lots to see and do.

Quaint museum that is great for a rainy afternoon. It's geared for education, not hands-on activities. Also have great movie nights.

Hi TaMara! We're so glad you enjoyed the Museum! Our exhibits rotate throughout the year, so sometimes they are hands-on and somethings they are not. We just opened our summer hands-on exhibition for kids and families called How People Make Things! It will run through August 28. More

Since it added the fabulous, new Stewart Auditorium, the Longmont Museum has packed its schedule with concerts, film series, fundraising events for organizations, and lots more. I'm constantly hearing of things to do, and when I ask where it's happening, it's often in the Stewart Auditorium. Their origami exhibit is beautiful, and I love the creativity and multifaceted offerings that... More

A great addition to the events for the Museum. Loved having this event in Longmont and not having to deal with Boulder traffic and parking.

This really is a great little place for a town like Longmont. It has interesting visiting exhibits, and a super cool permanent one that kids come to on school field trips. It is very well curated. It is always clean and well taken care of. The special events they have (Day of the Dead, concerts in the summer) are just... More

The Boulder International Film Festival held many of their films at this new venue for the first time this year. What a delightful space. Not one bad place to sit and great venue for beer and wine and appetizers before some films. The museum has wonderful exhibits all year and many outdoor concerts. Lucky Longmont Folks!

It has been awhile since we have attended this place. Our granddaughter loves to check out the water table, as well as the covered wagon and all the costumes and stuff for kids upstairs. We haven't been since they put on the new addition yet.

The Longmont Museum may be smaller than what you find in big cities but they have great exhibits that are fun for everyone. I've taken my grandchildren several times and always had to "drag" them away. They just completed a new 250 seat auditorium that is beautiful. I can't wait to go to a concert there.

I find something fundamentally disagreeable with paying 5 dollars for what my taxes pay for already. It has become more of a limited cultural display case rather than a museum. The special exhibits are not that special, and the standing ones are not that interesting 2nd time around. Bigger isn't necessarily better, the old museum made better use of space...this... More
