Boy Scout Groups

This is not your typical museum.  The museum was born from a scouting project which continues its proud history to this day.  For more than sixty-five years, the museum has hosted hundreds of thousands of scouts traveling through the area.  With Koshare performances, overnight experiences, and museum tours, the Koshare Museum will leave a lasting impression for your group.

While you are here…

  • See a Koshare performance.
  • View our Eagle Hall of Fame containing more than 600 Eagle Scouts graduated from our Boy Scout Troop.
  • Learn about the inspirational history of the Boy Scout Troop responsible for the museum and collection.
  • Enjoy the atmosphere of the Koshare Round Room and spend a night below the world’s largest self-supported log ceiling.
  • Explore the significant collection of Native American arts and artifacts collected by our Boy Scout Troop for more than sixty-five years.
  • Visit Bent’s Old Fort National Historic Site, hike to North America’s largest dinosaur tracksite, or discover hundreds of ancient petroglyphs in the canyons south of town.

We look forward to hosting your Boy Scout Troop!
