The staff was nice and the place interesting. Not sure it would be something to drive to unless you were looking to get on the other side of Denver Traffic to catch a flight at the airport. We had a 5:30 and wanted to be close so we looked for something to do in Aurora. It was interesting history and explained the area. Local art and changing displays. It is FREE so why not. Set around Police and County Gov Complex. Easy parking.

This museum is always very interesting. It always has a special exhibit and always very good. I have never had crowds and the displays are wonderful. I would recommend.

It is not publicized that much, really, and a lot of people don't know about it but it is surprisingly interesting and has very interesting exhibits. It is also free!!

What does the Name "Fletcher" have to do with Aurora? Come visit the museum and find out. There is no admission to this quant museum. Although quant, it is packed with local history to include exhibits of photos from the early years of Aurora to include "Patches" to an awesome display from Ethiopia. There is also a restored trolley trailer that you can go inside and sit like passengers from the past. Did you know that Aurora was once an official "one horse town"? Hopefully you are lucky enough to meet David, who will take you back in history with his vast knowledge of Aurora's history.
