School Break Programs

Join us at Golden History Museum & Park when school is out! During these half-day school break programs for ages 6-12, participants will explore science, art, history and more while enjoying the unique setting of our history park, whether it is a visit to the chickens or cooking something in the historic Pearce/Helps Cabin.

Space is limited. Dates coincide with no-school days for Jeffco Public Schools.

Enchantments and Mysteries

October 20-21, 2022; 9 a.m. – 12 p.m.

In preparation for Halloween, participants will explore the history behind this holiday through games and experiments; there might even be a little magic. Each day will feature a unique schedule; register for both days so you do not miss out. Limited to 20 participants per day.

Historical Concoctions

November 21-22, 2022; 9 a.m. – 12 p.m.

Did you know that Jolly Rancher was started in Golden, Colorado, or that Coors made pottery and malted milk for candy bars? Over two days, participants will experiment with mixing and matching materials and ingredients. Each day will feature a unique schedule; register for both days so you do not miss out. Limited to 20 participants per day.
