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.
Join us Wednesday evening, February 21st at El Moro Spirits and Tavern to support the Museum. The feature drink will be the French 75 Cocktail. This champagne-based drink was invented during WWI and was named for the 75mm field artillery gun allegedly due to its "powerful kick." The creative El Moro culinary staff will offer special period appropriate menu items. WWI historic interpreters will mingle among the tables and a trivia contest will test your WWI knowledge.
