They update the Museum with new items . The history of the old restored trolly care is very interesting and well done. We have donated items from time to time since we are long time residents of this city.

I have been there a few times. While it is small it has impact. Depending on the display it is worth checking it out. Each time I was a display I was interested in, and I was surprised at the quality. Check it out and see if the current exhibit is something of interest and check it out.

The Aurora History Museum is hard to find, tucked behind the city and county buildings, but worth the search. Their featured exhibits are usually well done, especially the exhibit of the Colorado Japanese internment camp last year. We enjoyed the history of video games. In the process of enlarging and updating, the museum promises to be bigger and better soon.

Aurora Museum is a free small museum that is right next to the Aurora Central Library. The exhibitions vary and are very interesting. They usually come from private collections. Anything from the history of video games to Vietnam War remembrances. There is also a room for kids to explore and has outfits for imaginary play, drawers with examples of fossils,... More

A museum focused on City of Aurora with rotating exhibits of related subjects such as a current one of photos of the earth and moon taken from space station. All volunteer and very well run operation, supported by the city plus donations. No admission, but I always leave donation.
