Virtual museum programs and a Denver museum reopens

By Joseph Rios

As restaurants, retail stores and other businesses have been open for weeks now, one popular place in Denver remains closed — the Denver Museum of Nature & Science.

And despite the museum’s closure, it hasn’t completely gone away.

The Denver Museum of Nature & Science is continuing to offer programs through a virtual platform as it remains temporarily closed in an effort to stop the spread of COVID-19.

The programs are free and have included webinars that have featured Epidemiologist Rachel Herlihy from the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment and other health officials regarding the way COVID-19 is impacting society. Next Monday at 8:30 a.m., the museum will host a webinar about myths and misinformation regarding COVID-19.

However, the programs aren’t all related to COVID-19. On June 17 at 7 p.m. the museum is hosting the “Dinosaurs in Your Backyard: New Discoveries in the Rocky Mountain West” event. The event focuses on new discoveries at the Colorado Front Range and other areas in the West. It will be led by Joe Sertich, curator of dinosaurs.

On June 18, the museum will host its “Date Night: Break Night” event. It will allow for residents to reflect on their role in the world. Museum Geologist James Hagadorn will discuss how light and minerals shape what we see, a release from the museum says.

History Colorado reopens

As the Denver Museum of Nature & Science resorts to virtual programs due to the pandemic, another museum in Denver has reopened.

The History Colorado Center announced on June 15 that it will reopen on June 22 as it plans to follow recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the state and local government officials.
