The Boulder History Museum's exhibit called "Chief Niwot -- Legend & Legacy" has received its second award for excellence in the field of local history.
Museum officials this week announced that the exhibit was selected from a pool of exhibits across the state as a 2012 winner of the Josephine H. Miles Award from History Colorado. History Colorado, the state's historical society, gives the award to organizations that make a major contribution to the advancement of Colorado history, according to a news release issued by the museum.
The Chief Niwot exhibit, which opened in May, focuses on the legacy of the chief of Boulder Valley's Arapaho Indians who attempted to make peace with the area's miners and settlers.
The exhibit previously received the 2012 Leadership and Innovation Award from the Mountain Plains Museum Association for its incorporation of community involvement and ability to link history with the modern day, according to the news release.
The exhibit, originally scheduled to close later this month, will remain open at the museum, 1206 Euclid Ave., through January.
The museum is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and noon to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Admission is $6 for adults, $4 for seniors and $3 for students. Children ages 5 and younger get in free.
