Museum Exhibitions
Temple Israel Exhibitions
The museum within the Temple Israel building opened in September of 2012 with a new permanent exhibition called Frontier Jewish Leadville, with additional tweaks and additions made in following years. In 2013, a small exhibition called Minette Miller: A Portrait opened at the Lake County Public Library and ended in early 2015. A new exhibition called Selling History: Advertisements of Jewish Leadville Businesses opened in July of 2015 in the choir's loft of the building. This exhibition expanded in the summer of 2017. As the museum continues to grow in artifacts and in public knowledge, more exhibitions will open.
