  • Golden History Museums
    In a sense, the story of the three Golden History Museums sites goes back to 1938, when Golden citizens began collecting and exhibiting artifacts from the region's history. But in another sense, it goes back much further: the 18-inch stone walls of the Astor House were lain in the mid-19th century, and the Clear Creek History Park represents an immaculate recreation of pioneer-era Colorado. No matter how far back visitors are peering into the past, the museums flesh out the story of Golden from the time of horse-drawn wagons to today. Size: it's a museum in three parts with more than 15,000 artifacts in the Golden History Center, the fully restored Astor House museum, and a reconstructed ranch at the Clear Creek History Park Eye Catcher: the miniature town inside the Golden History Center Permanent Mainstay: the photography collection (which can be browsed online) contains more than 2,500 historical images Don't Miss: head down to the restored ranch to see events and demonstrations, a thriving beehive, heirloom-breed chickens, and one of the best skies in the country

  • Dinosaur Ridge
    Children run in trails marked by prehistoric footprints, and fingers run across fossils during each visit to Dinosaur Ridge, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the preservation of ancient artifacts. Around every corner of the outdoor museum?which rests on land designated as a national natural landmark?bones and impressions protrude from their earthy abodes as evidence of the area's once larger-than-life inhabitants. Paleontologists of all ages can examine curious tracks on surrounding hiking paths, such as Triceratops Trail, or hop on a guided bus tour to examine fossil sites and valleys where brontosauruses used to question the meaning of life. Lurking inside the visitor center is the Trek Through Time exhibit, where interactive children's games, replica fossils, and massive murals join forces to lead explorers into different prehistoric eras. In addition to its day-to-day operations, Dinosaur Ridge also plays host to various events during the year, including Boy Scout days, birthday parties, and lectures that explain how T. rex stayed humble despite his large stature.

  • Colorado Railroad Museum
    Like a small-town railroad depot in the 1880s, the Colorado Railroad Museum’s main building features wide eaves and a bright-yellow exterior. The building reflects the Museum’s overall goal: to hark back to Colorado’s railroad era, a time when the state relied on its groundbreaking, narrow-gauge mountain railroads for supplies and information. Since 1959, the Museum has showcased the machinery of that time with an array of locomotives, passenger cars, freight cars, and cabooses. Alternatively, they present visitors with a glimpse of Table Mountain on the Museum’s train rides, enabling them to ride the rails in a bygone style without just taking the subway in an Abe Lincoln costume. To supplement its trains, the Museum hosts thousands of related rare photographs and artifacts, such as a replica of a 10,000-gallon water tank, humorously dubbed No Agua, that was once used to refill steam locomotives on the Chili Line to Santa Fe.

  • Red Rocks Amphitheatre
    Originally known as the Garden of Angels, Red Rocks enchants visitors with ethereal scenery and top-notch acoustics 6,450 feet above sea level. The amphitheater geologically emerged from the ocean floor over millions of years, its walls housing fossil fragments of various dinosaurs, including plesiosaurs, mosasaurs, and several plush Barney dolls. The carbon-dated rock 'n' roll history of Red Rocks includes performances by The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, and The Grateful Dead, who kept coming back to the venue year after year in search of their missing flip-flops. The sonic stone architecture of the venue has also led to dozens of popular live recordings, including U2’s Live at Red Rocks: Under a Blood Red Sky, John Tesh’s Live at Red Rocks, and Neil Young’s Road Rock Vol. 1.

  • Georgetown Loop Railroad
    The engine traces a path along evergreen-studded slopes and the walls of Clear Creek Canyon. It trundles over iron bridges slung across deep ravines and past the remains of gold and silver mines that pepper the Georgetown Loop Railroad. This mainstay winds along roughly the same 3.5-mile corkscrew route between Georgetown and Silver Plume that it has since 1884, spanning rocky terrain and reaching elevations of up to 9,128 feet. Today, the railroad's historic 1920s steam engine and two 1940s-era diesel locomotives fulfill the same role they've always performed: ferrying passengers through the mountains. In antique rail cars, passengers embark on seasonal rides through the great outdoors, glimpsing wildlife such as bighorn sheep and mule deer. They cross four bridges, including the Devil?s Gate High Bridge, and pull into historic train stations to ensure the conductor hasn?t been carried off by a gang of bald eagles. In winter, the staff sets the train aglow with festive lights and decorations, and during the summer, passengers can disembark for guided walking tours of the Lebanon silver mine, originally bored in the 1870s.

  • The Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum
    The Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum displays quilts from the 1800s alongside contemporary art pieces. Seeing these works in a shared space helps visitors understand how quilt making has evolved over the years. To that end, people can explore the exhibits full of family heirlooms and historically significant artifacts including the quilt that George Washington wrapped his beloved cherry tree in on cold nights. The museum also maintains volumes of historic patterns, technique resources, and out-of-print literature on quilts to help enthusiasts satiate their curiosity.
