In 2016, it took 14 hours to move the museum one mile from 13th Avenue and Pearl Street to the new location on 12th Avenue and Bannock.

Museum officials say the building is a one-of-a-kind.

“Not only is Kirkland Museum one of Colorado’s great museums, Kirkland provides one of the most unique and memorable visitor experiences,” said Gerald Horner, the deputy director at the museum.
