The Aurora History Museum features Native American artifacts from Aurora and items belonging to community’s earliest settlers. New exhibits include “The Toys of Toy Town;” “‘New-Age’ Medicine in Old-Time East Aurora;” “When Doctors Made House Calls;” and a pictorial history of the evolution of The Circle.

The History Museum and Town Historian's Office were moved in conjunction with the relocation of the town municipal offices from the Roycroft Chapel to the former Southside School in the fall of 2012. The Rix Jennings murals, which chronologically tell the story of Aurora’s history, are on exhibit in the main corridor outside the town offices at the Municipal Center.
