Our downtown museums are staying open extra-late Saturday night, and they’re offering FREE admission from 4:30 – 8 PM!

The Golden History Center plans an evening full of hands-on music and fun for all ages. Add your own style to the Golden Overture using our interactive music system, then pound out a beat while learning about Golden’s musical memories. They’ll also be broadcasting live on-site via the Colorado School of Mines’ internet radio station so you can test your DJ skills. If music is your calling, then GHC is a mandatory visit.

The scene will be a little quieter at the Astor House Museum, but it won’t be any less fun. Come learn and play Victorian parlor games (tableaus are like charades, but with a twist), tell stories, or make a craft. Kids will roll out “cookie” play dough and cut out fun shapes and patterns. Come early, because these activities will only be held from 4:30 to 8:00 p.m.
