Museum Programming

Consultation has concluded

Golden History Museum & Park engages and inspires visitors through preserving and sharing Golden’s history. Founded in 1938 as the Jefferson County Historical Museum, today GHM&P is a cultural campus in downtown Golden.

The 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.

The Golden History Park is a three-acre outdoor learning lab with historic and reproduction buildings that replicate a 19th century mountain homestead.
