Open House and Exhibit Reception at Golden History Museum

Celebrate the opening of two new exhibits at GHM and enjoy free, live music (Americana, blues, and old rock) from Alibi, as well as purchased beverages from CODA Brewing and freshly made snacks from Roadrunner Food Truck. We will also offer special hands-on activities and informal talks with the curator and other staff.

Clear Creek Room: The Heart of Golden

Surrounded by North and South Table Mountains, Clear Creek has drawn people to this area for millennia. Golden History Museum is excited to debut the Clear Creek Room, a multipurpose gallery and meeting space. Visitors can relax in this newly remodeled area with a view of the creek, while they learn about its cultural, industrial, recreational, and natural histories.

We Are Still Here: The Endurance of Native Jewels

In this exhibit, we define jewel as both a precious item as well as a woman of strength and importance. Explore how Indigenous women have persevered through hundreds of years of oppression and numerous attempts to destroy their culture. Featuring modern Native fashions that utilize ancient Indigenous jewels, learn about prominent Native women in contemporary American society. Not only are Native Americans still here; they have endured, and they are thriving.
