The Museum is also home to the 250-seat Stewart Auditorium, which hosts concerts, theater, films and lectures.

The Longmont Museum has a variety of education programs for all ages. We have ongoing programs, such as our "Discovery Days" program for ages 2-6 and a caregiver, Thursday night Art & Sips for adults, and our annual summer camps for kids. We also offer programs in conjunction with our current exhibits, and programs for school groups.

Historic Collections

The Longmont Museum's collection includes more than 17,000 objects, 10,000 photographs, and thousands of documents relating to Longmont and the St. Vrain Valley. They document everyday life - farmers working in their fields, ordinary workers in local factories, traveling businessmen, and much more.


Regional history, internationally-known artists, and explorations of culture are all part of the mix of exhibitions at the Longmont Museum. Permanent exhibits document the 14,000 years of human history in Longmont, and the people who helped to create this community. Special exhibits in our Main Gallery and in our Portal Gallery change frequently, so there is always something new to see.
