Fort Garland Museum Field Trips

Fort Garland Museum offers guided tours with hands-on activities. These tours can be tailored to the teachers' needs and want, and can be adjusted to meet necessary accommodations for your group. From preschoolers to high school seniors and university programs, students love our immersive and experiential exhibits and programs that explore our local and regional history.

We also provide follow-up activities to continue your learning experience beyond the museum.

All of our school programs align with Colorado Academic Standards. For more information about academic standards, contact the museum at 719-379-3512.

The price of all school tours is $2 per student. Teachers and adult chaperones are free with school groups. Title I Schools qualify for admissions and transportation discounts, including the History Colorado Bus Fund. You can learn more about the bus fund here.
