  • Description

    Located in the original house of Golda Meir in Denver, CO, is a museum and the Golda Meir Center for Political Leadership.
    Meir is mostly known as the fourth prime minister of Israel and the only woman who ever served in this position. She was born and raised in a traditional poor Jewish family who immigrated from Russia to Milwaukee. She came to Denver to live with her sister and brother-in-law to become a teacher (since in Milwaukee, women who were not married could not study).
    The original house was saved from demolition by Esther and Mel Cohen, and in 1988 was transferred to the Auraria Campus of the Metropolitan State University of Denver. It was designated a Denver landmark and went through a full restoration.
    In the upper level, is a museum with exhibits about Meir’s life and legacy as well as historical artifacts from the time she lived there. The lower level is the Golda Meir Center for Political Leadership operated by the Political Science Department at MSU Denver. The center is organizing leadership and educational programs promoting the important role of leadership in society.
