Current Events At The Museum
Housed in the collections of the Aurora History Museum are amazing pieces of our technological past. Powered by Science: Technologies of the Past and Future showcases these marvels of previous generations while highlighting some of the current and future tech jobs in Aurora. Discover how mechanical wonders of the 19th and 20th century work and learn about the new and innovative industries operating in our back yard.
This exhibition showcases the wide variety of faiths and religious experiences of Aurorans.
Museum staff interviewed faith leaders, community leaders and congregants in our community. The powerful messages of personality, faith, community involvement, relationship building and individual beliefs are told from the words of those most involved with Aurora's faith community.
Learn about other people's traditions and perspectives, engage with other people and their faiths, and celebrate Aurora's religious diversity. Now through May 30, 2021
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 September 25, 2021 Antique Appraisal Fair is scheduled. 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 2021. If you have any questions or wish to speak with me about the Aurora Museum Foundation please feel free to contact us via email at: email@example.com
ONLINE LECTURE: Colorado Military Women
Wednesday, April 21
Colorado women from every corner of the state enlisted in the military, joined the workforce, and volunteered on the home front. As military women, they served as nurses and in hundreds of noncombat positions. In defense plants they riveted steel, made bullets, inspected bombs, operated cranes, and stored projectiles. They hosted USO canteens, nursed in civilian hospitals, donated blood, drove Red Cross vehicles, and led scrap drives; and they processed hundreds of thousands of forms and reports. Whether or not they worked outside the home, they wholeheartedly participated in a kaleidoscope of activities to support the war effort. Join local author Gail Beaton as she discusses Colorado Women in World War II.
The lecture is free, but you must register to receive the link to the online Webex meeting. Space is limited, please only register if you plan to attend. More than one person can attend using the same computer.
