Fort Garland Museum & Cultural Center Volunteer Opportunities

Fort Garland Museum and Cultural Center includes original adobe buildings and view excellent exhibits on how the fort was saved and preserved. And, don’t miss the Infantry and cavalry barracks exhibits, an exhibit on the Buffalo Soldiers and the historic dioramas. From the Fort, plan a visit to Pike's Stockade, where Zebulon Pike and his men camped in the early 1800s.
