Information Regarding Antique Appraisal Fairs, held by AMF

You may have noticed that we are purposeful in directing our fundraising efforts to specific needs of the Aurora History Museum and Historic Sites.  This is how we will operate moving forward so that our members and contributors know where their donations are going.  The 2018 fall Antique Appraisal Fair funds went to purchase the new photo clings installed on the History Museum, the 2020 Festival of Wreaths funds raised are dedicated to Covid 19 Relief funds and needs at the Museum, and our April 24, 2021  Antique Appraisal Fair is schedualed.  This year will be our 21st year for both the Antique Appraisal Fair and the Festival of Wreaths, so please help us spread the word. 

We are grateful for your support and look forward to a fantastic 2019.  If you have any questions or wish to speak with me about the Aurora Museum Foundation please feel free to contact me directly.

Aurora vs Denver

From its origins, Aurora has had a uneasy relationship with Denver.

The lecture is free, but you must register to receive the link to the online meeting. Space is limited, please only register if you plan to attend. There is no cancellation fee.
