The Longmont Museum Capital Campaign
We’ve launched a campaign to raise $8.1 million toward a comprehensive construction project aimed at enhancing every aspect of our operations to make the Longmont Museum even better for our community.
Expanding the Museum
Since its modest beginnings in 1940 as a small exhibit space in the carriage house at Callahan House, the Longmont Museum has experienced remarkable growth and transformation over the span of 80+ years. It has evolved into a leading hub for groundbreaking programming, captivating exhibits, and impactful educational experiences in Northern Colorado for individuals of all ages. With its distinct local connections, the Longmont Museum symbolizes a community that embraces diversity, fosters connections, and celebrates a vibrant tapestry of customs and cultures.
After careful evaluation of its mission and strategic plan, as well as the continuous increase in attendance, it is clear that the Longmont Museum needs to undergo an expansion. The museum will embark on a comprehensive construction project aimed at enhancing every aspect of its operations, encompassing not only the galleries but also the provision of expanded office space to accommodate the growing staff.
Creating a dedicated exhibit space where children can play, learn and explore year-round.
Flex Gallery Expansion
Doubling the size of our flex gallery to provide more room for artists, accommodate multiple exhibits simultaneously and feature more robust touring exhibitions.
Expanding and enhancing the usable area in one of our most popular public spaces, including the construction of a new stage.
Increasing office and support spaces to align with our strategic plan of increased staffing, enabling us to offer more diverse programming and fulfill our mission.
