Baby Animal Days Return to Centennial Village Museum Ahead of Summer Season
The Centennial Village Museum is once again opening its doors for Baby Animal Days, taking place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. April 15-16 and April 18-24 at 1475 A Street.
Historically attracting over 4,000 visitors across the region, Baby Animal Days celebrates the return of spring by welcoming the community to the museum before the official start of the summer season. The Centennial Village Museum is open during regular summer hours from May 27 to September 3.
Event in partnership with Greeley West FFA
The Greeley West FFA Chapter partners with the Centennial Village Museum by loaning baby animals including calves, goats, lambs, piglets, chicks, ducklings and Ethel the cow. Several of the baby animals remain throughout the summer, joining the resident chickens and turkeys.
In addition to visiting the animals on site, visitors can walk through the historic park, take a self-guided cell phone tour, and participate in wagon rides by Mountain Shadow Carriages on Saturday, April 16 and 23 (weather permitting) . Tickets are $4 and children under two get free admission.
Opened in 1976, the Centennial Village Museum is a living historical experience that includes more than 35 historic buildings, costumed interpreters, heritage farm animals, and 8 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds. As the site of the City of Greeley Museums, the Centennial Village Museum preserves and interprets Western American heritage in Colorado’s High Plains region, housing some of Weld County’s oldest structures and hosting several annual special events.
