Expanded Museum Operating Hours Starting in May 2022

GOLDEN, Colo., April 26, 2022 – Golden History Museum & Park will offer expanded hours this summer and one additional open day per week starting in May.

To continue providing a high level of service to increasing numbers of visitors and residents, Golden History Museum & Park will be open five days per week, Tuesday through Saturday, starting May 3, 2022.

Additionally, throughout the summer, GHM&P will offer two days of extended hours beyond the usual operating hours of 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. On Fridays and Saturdays only, the museum will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Extended hours will begin on May 6 and conclude on October 1, 2022. Admission is always free.

As a complement to numerous educational programs for adults throughout the year, typically held in the evening, GHM&P will offer three special recurring events, all free of charge.

Homestead Open House, held outdoors at Golden History Park, will offer hands-on opportunities to see a blacksmith in action, authentic woodstove cooking, and many other activities. These will take place on the second Saturdays of June, July, and August from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.

Evening at the Museum, held on the fourth Thursday of each summer month, is a drop-in chance to chat with a curator and participate in real, behind-the-scenes artifact discussions from 5 – 7 p.m. Also offered on various evenings will be make-and-take art activities, pioneer games, and more.

Finally, Hands-on Family Activities at the Museum is a free outdoor story time presented by the Golden Library followed by fun crafts at the museum. These will be held June 8, July 6, and August 10 from 10:30 a.m. – noon. Advance registration (via the Golden Library’s website) is mandatory.
