Greeley History Museum’s newest exhibit gives visitors the opportunity to take a look through the lens of photography to learn about the art’s technology and history.
“Viewfinder: Through the Lens of Time” is open now and set to run through Jan. 7, 2024, at the museum, 714 Eighth St., with artifacts that guide visitors on a journey from the 19th century box cameras all the way up to today’s smartphones.
Visitors will be able to see one of the museum’s earliest artifacts — a No. 2 Bulls-Eye Kodak box camera.
Many of the artifacts showcased in the exhibit include details about the owners of the equipment as well as where residents were able to get film and photography supplies in Greeley. The interactive piece of the exhibit allows visitors to peruse a collection of photos from notable Weld County and Greeley photographers taken from the late 1800s to early 2000s.
All ages are welcome to attend the exhibit and admission is $8 for adults ages 18-59, $6 for seniors age 60 and older and $5 for youth ages 3-17.
The museum is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and closed Sunday through Tuesday. Group visits are available on Wednesdays by appointment only.
