  • Quite interesting! I would have enjoyed more if it had more of the older history. I am Golden born and then traveled, so I could not relate to the new bicycling, newer events, etc., that didn't seem to fit as "history"...just me though. I am sure many may find the new events/people interesting. The people were quite interesting to talk to though.
  • Great local museum! If you come to Golden, make sure to stop in and learn about the history of the town! Wonderful location! They have a small theatre with old, black and white movies that we're shot in Golden. They have a wonderful walking exhibit, highlighting benchmarks, events, and people that are important to the town. Highly recommended!
