The Animas Museum
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 offers a variety of exhibits and programs for all ages, and is also home to our research library and photo archives. For the latest on activities and events at the museum, please check here or on our Facebook page.
If you missed the Member's Only Event on Saturday, March 11, stop by the Museum this week to see the exhibit.
Call the Museum to make your reservations for "Rails to Reels" -- a trip on the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad to Cascade Canyon where we will explore the history movies made on the train and in the Durango area.
