We had a great time learning about local history from Bob Campbell as we toured this museum, even got to see the famous "Fur-bearing Trout" featured in an episode of the Mysteries at the Museum television show! Lots of interesting items attached to famous historical figures all with a local Salida connection. Will be back to see it again next... More

The animas city museum is quite interesting with lots of history displayed. This once was the animas school and therein lies more history. The people in charge there are very informed and extremely friendly and helpful. Always visit when in durango, co and never disappointed.

The Mountain Motel owner set us up for an almost private tour. We asked many questions. Took a lot of pictures. The volunteers loved telling us their stories. They are trying to improve the museum. The staff was very dedicated to creating a memorable experience.

This is quite an interesting little museum. Enjoyed personal information and history while there from one of the volunteers. This place has a lot of historical things in a fairly small amount of space. The museum is very easy to find, to access. Saw some items that were last seen a very long time ago and the history of same.

This little hidden treasure is located behind the visitor's center. We are museum-o-philes and have hit tons of small town (our favorite type) facilities throughout the west. This one is well organized, well documented and displays a lot of interesting local items, not just piles of collected junk. Local lore, local characters and local antiquities shine here.
