The Museum of Western Colorado is getting a new name and a new look. It's now called The Museum of the West. Right now, the Museum of Western Colorado focuses on a smaller picture about the history of this area, once the transformation is complete, the new Museum of the West will explore the old west and how different cultures co–existed at this time. It will focus on the harmony and the conflict between Native American cultures and Frontier cultures during the forming of the west. The new Museum of the West will be ready to enjoy Memorial Day weekend of 2007.
