Are you planning to bring a group to visit Golden History Museum? Tour the museum at your own pace after checking in at the front desk with your party. 

Reservations are not available or required. Admission is free due to the generosity of private donors; of course, donations of any amount are gratefully accepted.


Two options are available for you. Field trips at Golden History Park, located near downtown Golden, are offered each spring as part of Jr. Homestead Days. Additionally, the in-class program called Building Colorado is popular with third– and fourth-grade classes all over the Denver Metro area.  Our education team can answer any questions you have about these programs during business hours.
