Rio Grande County Museum
Fort Garland Museum
The 2019 program will start on Armed Forces Day, Saturday, May 18, 2019 and runs through Labor Day, Monday, September 2, 2019. As a Blue Star Museum, we are part of a national appreciation program for military families and all those who have served our country through military service. Exhibits of the Civil War, World War I and the stories of the Rio Grande County servicemen who didn’t return home from World War II will be included in the Armed Forces Day celebration.
The Rio Grande County Museum is proud to be able to honor our active and retired military along with those who served with this program and with proper documentation, the admission fee to the museum is waived. The museum extends this for the entire year.
