Museum Of Northwest Colorado

The Cowboy and Gunfighter Museum, housed within the Museum of Northwest Colorado, showcases Mr. Bill Mackin's collection of nearly 1,000 "working cowboys" artifacts. The museum also features exhibits on rocks and fossils, coal mining, railroading, a local hardware store, and an old classroom that includes 100 years of class photos from Craig/Moffat County High School.

We hope you enjoy our work.
