Children’s Gallery

NOW OPEN! CSPM’s new Children’s Gallery exhibit, Beads, Blankets and Buffalo: Trade at Bent’s Fort, gives visitors ages 2-10 an interactive, hands-on experience of a “day in the life” at Bent’s Fort. Bent’s Fort was a multicultural place of trade and exchange along the Santa Fe Trail in the 1830s and 1840s. In the exhibit, children can explore a carpenter’s shop, trade counter, kitchen, tipi and Santa Fe Trail wagon!
