After a complete overhaul of the 1875 Edwin Carter Museum in 2008 and 2009, natural history lovers are invited to take an interactive and interpretive adventure dedicated to the legacy of Colorado's famous log cabin naturalist--Professor Edwin Carter. Exhibit themes trace the evolution of Carter's life as a miner, taxidermist, and scientist and explain how, in 1900, his amazing collection of Rocky Mountain fauna came to serve as the nucleus collection for today's Denver Museum of Nature and Science. Also featured in the museum is a new theater room and an interactive learning center where children can try hands-on activities related to Carter’s work. This project was funded by the Town of Breckenridge.
