Benefits

Did you know members get free admission to most programs? It’s one important way the Museum can welcome you back time and again to discover the amazing history of our community. Take a look at the chart below to see the entire complement of benefits for each level.

Members Only

Worth every dollar

Here’s what one member had to say: “…your guest speakers make every dollar worth it. They have been very interesting and well presented. Hope even more people get involved. They are missing out!  Thanks.” — J. Johnson, Golden, Colorado

Community spirit

Decades ago, community spirit saved the Astor House, the buildings from the old Pearce Ranch that make up Golden History Park, as well as the Guy Hill Schoolhouse. Each of them could have been demolished. Today we rely upon that same energy to help us connect people to the history of Golden, Colorado, through innovative exhibits, dynamic programs, and historic collections.
