“A cowboy and gunfighter collection”
The Museum of Northwest Colorado began as the Moffat County Museum in 1964. Until 1990, it was housed in the Moffat County Courthouse. In 1991 it opened at its new location at 590 Yampa Avenue in the former Colorado State Armory. At present, our building has been almost totally renovated and restored. This was made possible with excellent support from Moffat County. Also, from 1990 to 1996 grants received towards this project have totaled $155,400 from the following: Colorado Department of Local Affairs, Colorado Historical Society, and the Gates Foundation. In 1992 the building was placed on the National Register of Historic Places. The museum's operational budget is approximately $150,000 per year, which is currently funded by Moffat County. The building plus the museum's permanent collection is now valued at more than $1.1 million.
