DENVER (AP) - The Colorado history museum is cutting its budget by millions and changing leadership as part of a reorganization of its staff and board.

The Denver Post reports (https://dpo.st/1J93fcv ) that the museum announced Thursday that its top four officials will depart. President and CEO Edward Nichols, State Historian William Convery, Chief Operating Officer Kathryn Hill and Vice-President of Finance Joseph Bell all accepted voluntary buyout offers from History Colorado, the state agency that oversees the Denver museum and other historic projects.

In addition to the staffing changes, the museum hopes to cut more than $3 million from its annual $26 million budget over the course of two years.

The museum is funded through taxes on gaming revenues, which have declined since smoking was banned in casinos.
