Creating a Humanities Center for Longmont: Expanding the Longmont Museum & Cultural Center

Construction of an addition to the current galleries to create an educational center with a 250-seat auditorium, a classroom/gallery, and an event space.

The Longmont Museum and Cultural Center (LMCC) respectfully requests a challenge grant of $200,000 from the National Endowment for the Humanities to support the construction of an addition to the current galleries, which have received national merit awards for their historical content, and affected 62,024 people last year. The challenge grant will provide us with the funding necessary to construct a 250-seat auditorium and an educational center gallery space, the result of feasibility studies and strategic planning. This grant will provide students and community members with a venue to hear historical lectures and films, greater visibility of the permanent collections, and new programs for children and families.
