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.

I often enjoy spending a short time in small-town museums. This one is exceptionally good, although it only takes less than an hour to go through it. But it highlights local history, including that of favorite son Glenn Miller, who spent his high school years...More

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.

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.
