The new Greeley History Museum is open downtown in the old Greeley Tribune building.
The new museum offers much more space for artifacts to be stored and displayed. Now the museum will be able to be sure that items are stored safely. One of the more interesting artifacts on display today is a pair of glasses for a chicken.

The Hazel E. Johnson Research Center (named for one of the members of the first museum board and well-known collector) is where people can read about the history of Greeley. Inside the center, you can find photographs, videotapes, books, maps, scrapbooks, city directories, and more.

Here are some pictures of the new museum.
