I was pleasantly surprised by how cool this Museum was. Plenty to see for both adults, and kids. If you are in the area you will be glad you stopped by to check this place out.

One of the best deals in town. For the cost of an optional donation, you can experience Aurora's history and other regional exhibits. We've enjoyed the Doctor's Office exhibit and the TV Repair shop exhibit in the past. And, the craft displays are always a treat.

Found this museum, which is directly next to a Police Memorial Wall, wall is in the back-outside. This museum is small. We had some time to spare before we headed to the airport and walked through in about thirty minutes. There is no charge to enter.

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.
