We got to Fort Morgan earlier then expected so had some extra time to visit the museum. What a treasure. Stop by to check out this small, free museum. A corner room was devoted to Glen Miller. Interesting stop.

Visited the Fort Morgan Museum when traveling to Denver. It is small but nicely laid out. An excellent source of information on Fort Morgan and its people. Enjoyed my visit.

Gives the history of the area. Attached to the library. No entrance fee. Life must have been tough on these dry high plains.

I found this little gem in the basement of the library and enjoyed all the history it had to offer. I'm not a Fort Morgan native and learned a great deal about my new home. Not to be missed!

This museum was first rate. There is not a fee to get in but they will take donations. We spent over an hour here looking at the history of the area, great place to stop.

It really offers some insight to the local community and history. The library is also part of the building, and has a gallery in the basement. It is a center for some lectures. Even though it is not glitzy is really quite good for a...More

It looks like a new museum with very few actual historical artifacts and quite a few brand new paintings, signage and other educational materials. There is an area devoted to Glen Miller who spent his childhood in Fort Morgan, but the videos are hit and...More
