About the Museum
The Aurora Museum & Archives has its origins in the Aurora Historical Society, which was founded in 1963. For half a century the Society developed, preserved and interpreted a collection of over 16,000 objects including artifacts, photographs, textiles, books and documents spanning the period from 500 BC to present day. In 2013, the collection was transferred to the town of Aurora and two years later the Aurora Collection was re-branded as the Aurora Museum & Archives, which is now part of the Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services Department of the Town of Aurora.
The Museum serves as a repository for the collective stories and experiences of the town, and is committed to preserving, promoting and presenting the vibrant and ever changing character of the town or Aurora by making their collection accessible and available.
