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.
The Battle for the Ballot: Women’s Suffrage in Colorado celebrates women’s history in Colorado and in Aurora. The exhibit provides key historical context for women’s rights in the 19th century, profiles the passage of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution in 1920, highlights key women in Colorado’s history and gives significant attention to Aurora’s women of today.
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 2018 Festival of Wreaths funds raised are dedicated to the Fox Theatre Center neon sign and marquee rehabilitation effort, and our April 27th Antique Appraisal Fair will raise funds for the restoration of portions of the original Gateway to Aurora sign. This year will be our 20th 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.
HIDDEN IN PLAIN SIGHT
Aurora's Historic Preservation Program
The Aurora History Museum’s new exhibit chronicles the stories of Aurora’s historic landmarks and districts, and Cultural Heritage Site Program.
Take a trip around Aurora and you’ll see a lot of new development. In spite of
the growth, there are true historical treasures to behold tucked away within
our neighborhoods. Reminders of Aurora’s agricultural, military and residential past. Structures that tell the stories of industry, community gathering places
and art centers. Since 1985 the city of Aurora’s Historic Preservation Commission
has been working to save and highlight the town’s significant buildings and properties.
