Interactive Museum.

Headwaters River Journey, a water and wildlife museum, invites visitors to discover the wonder of Colorado’s rivers, to become more aware of the critical role the headwaters play in our environment, and to explore ways each of us can help conserve our greatest resource – water.

Environmentally Friendly.

With an eye for sustainability, Headwaters Center was designed with materials from the past incorporating the energy of the future. An “off-the-power-grid” facility, the building derives the majority of its energy from the sun.

More Than 30 Engaging Exhibits.

Using state-of-the-art interactive technology, Headwaters River Journey takes visitors on an informative, insightful, and introspective exploration of the wonders of nature, the importance of water, and our direct impact on them both.

We’re In This Together.

Education is the first step in water conservation and river preservation. Learn together on a field trip or group tour.
