New museum exhibit celebrates religious diversity

History Museum celebrates Aurora’s religious diversity with new exhibit
Posted on 01/04/2021

The Aurora History Museum is showcasing the wide variety of faiths and religious experiences of Aurorans in the new exhibit “Religious Diversity in Aurora,” which opened virtually Dec. 15.
 
For the creation of the exhibition, faith leaders, community leaders and congregants shared their stories with museum staff. The powerful messages of personal faith, community involvement, relationship building, and individual beliefs are told from the words of those most involved with Aurora’s faith community.
 
“In these difficult times, we thought it would be meaningful to create this exhibition to promote better understanding and unity within our community,” said T. Scott Williams, Aurora History Museum director.

Exhibit visitors will explore photos of over 140 houses of worship in the city and will learn about other people’s beliefs and traditions. The “Religious Diversity in Aurora” exhibit celebrates Aurora’s diverse religious community and will run through the end of May 2021.  

In the continued interest of the community’s health and safety, following guidance where counties were moved to Level Red: ‘Severe Risk’ in the state’s COVID-19 dial dashboard, the Aurora History Museum will be closed through at least Dec. 18. Once the public health restrictions lessened and the museum is able to open, the exhibit will be available in person.
