You can learn about people of the West at the Arvada History Museum.
In the 1700s and 1800s, Native Americans, Latinos, and settlers all rode horses while hunting and migrating from one area of the country to another. Until cars were brought to the West in the early 1900s, horses were the main form of transportation. Riding a horse was the only way to quickly travel across large areas of the Plains. At the Arvada History Museum you can see an old western saddle, tools used for horseshoeing, and much more!
Below are activity sheets to help you and your family have a better arts experience. You can either print them out or pick them up in-person at the Arvada Center. Many of the activities on the sheets are geared towards showing kids that art and history can be fun.
