Golden History Museums offers visitors fun, participatory experiences about the exciting history of this dynamic town.
The Astor House Museum, a former hotel and boarding house, offers a glimpse of life at the frenetic turn of the 20th century when Golden was a bustling supply town and trade center. Establishments like the Astor House were an important fixture in Golden where transients and passers-through outnumbered residents nearly four to one.
Clear Creek History Park recreates 1880s life on a ranch in nearby Golden Gate Canyon. Visitors can immerse themselves in pioneer life by helping tend our garden, lending a hand with chores, participating in a school lesson, and caring for our farm animals.
The Golden History Center features a variety of changing exhibits about Golden’s past. It also boasts one of the finest collections of Coors Porcelain in the country, fun Jolly Rancher memorabilia, and a wealth of artifacts that tell the story of our city from its founding to present day.
We encourage you to explore and enjoy each of our venues. You’ll find that GHM offers something for everyone in your family and is a place you can visit and share with your friends and family time and again.
