March at the Museum

March at the Museum

The month of March was named after the Roman god of war. During the month, winter ends and spring begins. The birthstone for March is the aquamarine. Its zodiac signs are Pisces (February 19 – March 20) and Aries (March 21 – April 19). And the birth month flower is daffodil, which the Telluride Historical Museum is now celebrating – along with other great happenings this month.
