Día de los Muertos Shrine

at Trinidad History 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 Trinidad History Museum 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, Fort Garland Museum and Cultural Center, and El Pueblo History Museum.
