Temporary Closure in 2018
Golden History Museum, in celebration of its forthcoming 80th anniversary in 2018, is embarking on a full renovation of the museum’s public spaces. The initiative called Discovery Awaits will transform the museum into a warm, welcoming, and vibrant public space for uncovering and sharing our past. The renovation includes new programming spaces, a research center, a hands-on gallery for families with young children, and dynamic new exhibits that highlight the City’s collection of historic objects. With the vision of “always something new to discover,” the renovated Golden History Museum brings the behind-the-scenes practices of object discovery and preservation to the front of the house.
Beginning December 31, 2017, the Golden History Museum will close temporarily to the public during construction and installation. Golden History Museum anticipates reopening in early summer of 2018. During this period, GHM will continue to offer public programs at alternate locations around Golden. For more information about Discovery Awaits and museum programming, visit our events page.
Epic Events walks you through over three dozen moments that shaped Golden’s past. Those times range from big to small, happy to sad. Some are memorable and some are best forgotten. Step inside this exhibit and feel what it’s like to live through 150 years in Golden. Now on view.
