Colorado Music Hall of Fame
Discover Old Friends and New Music
Located inside the Trading Post, the Colorado Music Hall of Fame museum is Colorado’s premier music museum. The dynamic exhibits are designed for visitors of all ages to enjoy before concerts or during day-trips to the park. The free museum maintains the same hours as the Trading Post and is a place where fans of Colorado homegrown music can reminisce and learn about our state’s amazing and diverse musical history. Visitors to Red Rocks need only follow the signs to the Trading Post, which is on the east side of the amphitheater just below the main stage.
“It is tremendously exciting to see how far we’ve come,” founder and long-time concert promoter, Chuck Morris, says. “Our thanks go out to…the City of Denver for making it possible to be on the Red Rocks campus.”
From Glenn Miller to five-time Grammy winner Dianne Reeves, the Hall is a place to discover old friends and new music. Colorful and entertaining exhibits are devoted to the more than 40 Colorado artists, industry members and institutions that have been inducted since the Hall opened in 2011. Music history comes alive – showcasing memorabilia and kiosks that profile each inductee with bios, photos, audio and videos. One of Colorado Music Hall of Fame’s premier artifacts, the John Denver “Spirit” statue, greets visitors and welcomes them into the Hall. Thousands of John Denver fans worldwide have registered their excitement and approval in a flurry of social media posts about the statue and exhibit.
The mission of Colorado Music Hall of Fame, a nonprofit organization, is to celebrate our state’s music heritage by honoring those who have contributed to that legacy, and to share it with the public through exhibits of historic artifacts, educational programming and musical events.
