"It doesn't take much time or money to see this at your own pace and you get a souvenir included in the price that you get to watch be made. It was interesting to learn all the things that were invented in Golden. Good spot to stop by if you are new to Golden or thinking of moving there – you get a sense of the people through the bios of the real people in the community." -- TripAdvisor review
