The docent was perfect! Met us at the door and started our tour in the "school room." 3 floors of history on Animas county - including the police and fire departments. Highly recommend!
Museum is located in a neighborhood in a building that was an old school. Entrance fee is $4pp with discounts for seniors, military and kids.

This is an old school house. Be sure a read the rules and regulations sheets on the teachers desk in the school room, they are priceless. A lot of the Animas and Durango history is here which was very informative and answered some of the things we had wondered about. Not a required highlight, but interesting if you have the... 更多
