About Us

The Animas Museum is owned and operated by the La Plata County Historical Society, whose directors and staff have transformed the 1904 Animas City School building into a charming local history museum.

The Museum is currently closed to the public. We offer a variety of exhibits and programs online. Please contact us for assistance with access to our research library and photo archives at info@animasmuseum.org

We are preparing for re-opening. Two weeks after La Plata County Dial Metrics are at "green" level, we will be open for members only for research by appointment on Tuesdays and Fridays. The galleries will not be open to the public. We will start accepting reservations when San Juan Public Health announces that we are "green". Check back here for the latest information.
