Aurora History Museum
We'd love to see your group visit our museum! Large groups make the museum galleries fill up fast, please call ahead if you have more than 8 people in your group. The Aurora History Museum is part of the Library and Cultural Services Department for the city of Aurora. The Cultural Services Division is the largest single provider of arts and culture in the city of Aurora offering programs in performing arts, fine arts, history, and public art. The Aurora History Museum opened its doors in 1979 in a historic building with two small galleries and an office. In 1990, the museum moved to its present location and re-opened in 1991. The museum collects and exhibits artifacts and documents pertaining to the history of Aurora and Colorado. The museum receives funding from the city of Aurora, Scientific and Cultural Facilities District, and the Aurora Museum Foundation. Programs are also supported by the Aurora Historical Society.
