The museum houses and cares for approximately 38,000 objects – only a small percentage of which are on display at any given time. Objects not on display are available for supervised, on-site research use by special appointment. Access to the FCMoD’s collections is available through The Fort Collins History Connection, an online collaboration between the Poudre River Public Library District and FCMoD. Those wishing to research any aspect of FCMoD’s collections can make an appointment with the Collections Curator, Linda Moore by calling or emailing her at 970-416-2784 or email@example.com. Prominent among the Museum’s collections are stone objects from the Folsom-era Lindenmeier site and Clovis cultural complex; locally focused historic clothing and textiles; and household and personal artifacts dating from the mid-19th century.
Local history lives here. From photographs, books, maps, newspapers, oral histories, and so much more – you can discover it all at FCMoD!
