Museum of Northwest Colorado in Craig featuring new exhibits

The Museum of Northwest Colorado has unveiled two new exhibits this summer — one that pays homage to a cross-country American highway, and another that puts a new wrinkle on an Old West tale. “America Takes to the Road on Victory Highway,” a tribute to an effort in the 1920s to honor World War I veterans, opened last week. And, earlier this summer, the museum injected the work of a new artist into “Passing of the Old West,” an exhibit that originally opened last year.
