Arvada Historical Society members contribute thousands of volunteer hours annually. An $8.7 million expansion was completed in 1992 and a possible $70 million expansion is being developed for completion by 2018.

The center offers classes in visual arts, dance, humanities, music, and photography. Two floors of gallery space host 12 to 15 art exhibitions annually and a permanent exhibition of cultural history. A variety of music performances range from bluegrass and country to jazz and summer concerts. The Center has two theaters—indoor seating for 500, and outdoor amphitheater seating for 600. Six theatre productions are brought in by Equity Union members.
