The History of the Denver Museum of Nature & Science with Kirk Johnson
This is a lecture which Kirk Johnson, our former chief curator, gave in 2012 on the history of the Museum. The lecture is full of interesting twists, personal anecdotes and insights, big personalities, meanderings through familiar and unfamiliar content, and the kind of "we don't know's?" that set the imagination and curiosity spinning in new directions.
Through this project, a team of Museum folks trolled through archives and collected 100 oral histories to tell the story of the Denver Museum of Nature & Science. In this lecture, Kirk takes us on a journey through what we learned about our long history.
