This university museum is located in Old Main, one of the oldest buildings on the CU campus. Seven galleries house exhibits that display 19th century student life, athletic trophies and photos, and the "Space Room" that features the space suits and artifacts of astronauts that graduated from CU. Additional galleries honor the achievements of distinguished alumni and house architectural models and renderings.The Heritage center also hosts a Tree Walk, where you can visit campus and learn all about the various flora and take the opportunity to familiarize yourself with some of the university's impressive architecture. "Hit the Bricks" is a unique way to experience Boulder's campus life and architecture. The display of LEGOs features campus staples like Mackey Auditorium, Fiske Planetarium, and Boulder's college district "The Hill." This display is completely free and utterly adorable.
