Family, education, business, adventure, hard work and passion led to success. Wish we had... More

I didn't know much about Fred Harmon before stopping here, but I'm glad we stopped in. We were even lucky enough to be able to talk to Fred Harmon's 87 year old son. Lots of his paintings on exhibit, along with pictures from way back to when he worked with Walt Disney!

Fun to hear of the artistic life and times of Fred Harman. Very knowledgeable docents. Tucked away in a little park-like area in center of Pagosa Springs.

This is a small, very specialized museum. There is some interesting old artwork and Western artifacts. Call ahead to be sure it is open.

If you know Red Ryder and Little Beaver, you will love this small museum for all its art and history relating to this comic strip. But it is just as interesting for people who just have an interest in the Old West. The paintings and other collectibles on display are a joy. The docents are well informed and enthusiastic. If...

Don't let the outside fool you. The museum has most of Mr. Harman's paintings. They show a CD with a narrative about many of the paintings which I found to be most informative.
