It doesn't take much time or money to see this at your own pace and you get a souvenir included in the price that you get to watch be made. It was interesting to learn all the things that were invented in Golden. Good spot to stop by if you are new to Golden or thinking of moving there – you get a sense of the people through the bios of the real people in the community.
If you get the combo ticket it's a total of $5 to also see the Astor House, which is also well worth visiting. It'll take to total of ~2.5-3 hours if you also take a stroll through the Clear Creek History Park which is located between the two. I wish I had known about it being free during special events and about the other TA posting saying you don't have to visit the Astor House + the History Center on the same day. However, they take such a short amount of time I wouldn't want to drive all the way back either, but for those that live closer to the area it's good to know.
