POI of the Week: Museo de las Tres Colonias

The Museo de las Tres Colonias provides a living history highlighting Hispanic life, working conditions in the sugar beet industry and community life, most specifically within the Tres Colonias, Buckingham, Andersonville, and Alta Vista, during the Twentieth Century.

The adobe home is a great educational tool, interpreting the significance of Hispanic culture and its impact on the Fort Collins community. This museum provides insight and community support of Hispanic culture in the home, religion, work, cultural celebrations, tolerance and social justice.

The Museo del las Tres Colonias is an asset to the community and something we can all can take pride in!

Museo is FREE and open to the public the third Saturday of every Month for tours & school visits.
