Museum members are one of our most appreciated and valued assets. Many members give additional donations beyond yearly dues. These funds help us preserve historic buildings, conserve and acquire artifacts, provide materials for student programs, and care for our beloved chickens.

With your support we can continue to share the stories of the early Coloradans who made the Golden area their home with the more than 50,000 individuals who view our exhibits, participate in our hands-on programs, or attend our special events each year.

We make it easy to donate, either once or with a recurring monthly donation:

  • send a check in the mail (923 10th St., Golden, CO 80401)
  • contact us by email
  • call during business hours (303-278-3557)
