The Colfax Museum


The Colfax Avenue Walk of Fame and Museum, dedicated to Schuyler Colfax and Colfax Avenue, the longest, wickedest (as in awesome) Main Street in America that bears his name, is moving to 6851 W. Colfax Avenue Unit C, Lakewood, Colorado, 80214. We're excited to be a part of the growing 40 West Arts District!

We will be opening a Pop-Up Gallery in our new space on July 6th, 2018, as a part of First Friday. Drop by from 5-9:00pm. There will be music, food, art, and a taste of the new museum space. All Ages! 

We have an extensive collection of collectibles and one-of-a-kind items which the whole family can enjoy. Learn about Colorful Colorado History as it took place along the legendary strip. Come visit a museum where YOU are a part of the history. Film your local memories and stories in the Museum and be a part of the movie!

Thanks to Denver's Westword for giving us the Best New Museum in Best of Westword 2018!

The museum was originally located at 6109 E. Colfax Avenue in Denver, Colorado. Sincere thank you to Lydia Mary for offering up a lovely space for us to place the Museum in her flower shop, Ed Moore Florist and More. At least we can say the space smelled incredible.

According to Denver Historian Phil Goodstein, "Having a Colfax Museum in a flower shop is just like carrying Posies during The Plague: it covers the smell!"

We are going to miss the flower shop and the incredible people that work there, but we are very much looking forward to a bigger space to house our ever expanding Colfax Collection.

  7. Hello Jonny,

    I wasn't aware you had opened (see first comment above April 2017). I was visiting the Aurora Museum and the U.S. 40 exhibit when we bumped into Scott Willams. I saw many of your images and learned from Scott that you were open . . . congratulations.

    My wife Kathy and I are coming to your March 21st brown bag lunch/talk. We are looking forward to meeting you and scheduling a museum visit. We also need to add you to our website!
