Día de los Muertos Shrine

at Fort Garland Museum

Ancient traditions meet a new moment of grief this year. History Colorado is commemorating Día de los Muertos (the Day of the Dead) statewide with shrines at four museums, inclusively focused on the losses of Covid-19 in Colorado. The shrine at Fort Garland is free and open to our community and will be on view through November 6.

Additional community ofrendas are also open to all at the History Colorado Center, Trinidad History Museum, and El Pueblo History Museum.
