With the assistance of an NEH challenge grant that helped the museum raise an additional $600,000, the Longmont Museum completed a significant expansion in 2015. In years prior, the museum consisted of a few gallery spaces and education rooms. The expansion, which included a 250-seat auditorium, an atrium, and ample classroom space, doubled the museum’s public space and had a significant impact on its ability to serve the community through educational and culturally-enriching programming. In 2020, the NEH awarded the Longmont Museum a CARES grant to help it manage the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“[The Longmont Museum] is a feather in the cap for the whole town.”
