Global Village Museum Of Arts And Cultures

200 W Mountain Avenue
Fort Collins, CO 80521

Beginning in June 2006, members of the community wanted a place to engage and inspire visitors to learn more about world cultures, people, art, and history in order to promote world understanding and foster peace. The Global Village Museum was created and opened its first facility in March 2010.

In April of 2011 the Museum relocated to a larger facility on Mountain Avenue where the Museum’s diverse collections and artifacts are on display in one of four gallery spaces: Main Gallery, Mundoville Gallery (International Folk Art in Miniature), Village Arts Gallery, and Hall Gallery.

The Main Gallery showcases temporary exhibits every 3 to 4 months. The Mundoville Gallery and Village Arts Gallery are home to the Museum’s permanent collection of world folk art, fine art, artifacts, and musical instruments donated by local collectors and founding members of the Museum.

To date the Museum’s collection includes hundreds of ethnographic items, art, and archaeological objects from around the world. The artifacts represent many historical periods, myriad world cultures illustrating diversity of ancient and traditional techniques, and materials used by people from every continent.

The Museum collaborates with private collectors to enhance exhibits and expand educational opportunities.  Private collectors to enhance exhibits and expand educational opportunities.  Previous exhibits at the Museum have showcased many pieces of these collections.
