The purpose of the City of Greeley Museums
remains essentially the same: to collect, preserve, interpret and share the history of northeastern Colorado. One way community members can get involved is by joining the Museum Board. It is a team of people who review museum programs, approve policies, assist with fundraising and long-range museum planning.
Last year, the board worked to develop ways to safely open in light of COVID-19 and open several new exhibits and Museum at Twilight a new event that occurs monthly
. It is an opportunity to explore the Greeley History Museum in the evening and hear a presentation from a special guest who is an expert on the topic.
Mike Weiland is the chair of the board. He is excited about the work he is doing. “This year we’re working with civic organizations to improve the exhibits to make them more relevant and honest to our diverse population.” A major project the board is working on is fundraising to build a new Agricultural Heritage Building at Centennial Village. “This project has allowed me to become more involved with more people and connect them to the museums in Greeley.”
Weiland encourages others to get involved, “the board realizes the importance of a museum to a community and encourage all interested to apply.”
