I only had a short time at this Museum before I had to catch a flight out of Denver Airport but what I saw was very interesting. I particularly liked the renovated 1913 Trolley Trailer (Trolley #610) that used to run along Colfax Ave into Aurora. The photography exhibition that was showing in one of the museum's side rooms was also of great interest to me. The lady on the front desk was very helpful and accommodating. There is no entrance fee for this museum.

We got here about a half hour before closing on a Saturday. We focused on the Aurora history rooms, but could have spent more time there. The trolley was fun for the kids to climb around in, and the the geocache we were hunting was a good incentive, as well. We'd like to return with more time to be able to also visit the special exhibit room. Plenty of parking is nice, if a bit of a walk. Someone with mobility issues may need to be dropped off closer to the door.
