Beautiful architecture, native landscaping and inspiring sculpture converge around the museum’s courtyard, offering you the most beautiful space for your event. Imagine your wedding ceremony set against a cascading water feature, wildflowers and quaking aspen trees. The Courtyard provides the unique feel of a beautiful Colorado mountain setting, located right here in the Denver metro area!
