Centennial Village Museum… where the past comes to life! Some of Weld County’s oldest structures are located on the site of this 8-acre open-air museum, which features costumed interpreters, heritage farm animals, beautifully landscaped grounds and interactive experiences. Centennial Village is an “open-air museum” and field trips occur in both rain or shine so prepare accordingly. Due to high demand and limited space, we ask that you schedule your visit today.
