Mueller State Park - Divide, Colorado


Project overview

Mueller State Park is surrounded by many of the 14,000’ tall peaks of the Rocky Mountains. It is home to large numbers of black bear, elk and bighorn sheep. Most of the exhibits in the visitor center are organized by the different types of habitat located in the Park: meadow, aspen forest, coniferous forest, and granite rock outcropping.

Some unusual features in the 1,500 sq. ft. exhibit space are a 12’ tall replicated rock outcropping with taxidermy mounts of bighorn sheep, a touchable cross-section scale model of nearby Pike’s Peak, and a free interpretive workbook that young visitors can use to make rubbings of animal tracks located throughout the exhibit hall. During the design process a strong emphasis was placed on having a high level of interactivity in the exhibits. As a result there are matching games, hidden answer quizzes, over a hundred touchable items, a video, numerous audios, one scent feature, and a guide for parents to interpret the exhibits with their children.
