To celebrate the 138th birthday of their state, Coloradans could take a step back in time.

The History Colorado Center opened its doors Friday with free admission, like many other museums around the state, and provided a day full of performances, food and hands-on activities.

Kelly Rosebush and her two sons, ages 1 and 5, have never been to the state history museum before and Rosebush said she thought it was a good chance to check it out.

The three participated in most of the activities for kids, but Rosebush's sons seemed to favor the adobe brick-making station.
