We enjoyed this house. Lots of historical information and recordings to listen to. We enjoyed it very much.
It doesn't take much time or money to see this charming old boarding house. You can go at your own pace with the audio stations they have. If you get the combo ticket it's a total of $5 to also see the Golden History Center, which is also well worth visiting. It'll take to total of ~2.5-3 hours if you... More
It was quite interesting to see how they lived at the turn of the century in Golden, and the fact that it was the first hotel, it would maybe have been better had it been a guided tour, but I think it is run on a volunteer basis (not sure). The young lady on the front desk was very helpful... More

We were stranded during a snowstorm and were looking for something to fill time. The old home had some interesting glances into life a century ago. I suppose some of these items were familiar to me after having seen them at my grandmothers home. It may be interesting for young children to see how laundry was done in yesteryear.
I wouldn't call this a must-see, but it's definitely got some interesting things about it. The lady at the front was helpful and friendly, very reasonable price to get in. I enjoyed learning about how it got started, the way it changed over the years, and imagining the different people who stayed there through their automated tour system. They don't... More
