  • A free place to take your children to during the summer! Educational fun for the family! Learn about Aurora's fascinating history! The staff is helpful and kind.
  • We stopped by this small museum in the Aurora Municipal Center campus near the city hall, courts, public library, etc. Entering we were greeted by a staff member who explained the different exhibits - currently there are three: Growing Home, Hometown Pride, and One Small Step. The permanent exhibit Growing Home provides an overview of Aurora history. It starts with the various neighborhoods that make up the city and their origins - a wall-sized aerial picture of the city has the locations of the various neighborhoods highlighted, and next to that are a series of information panels that give a short description of each neighborhoods origin and history, complete with photos.
