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.

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
