  • Smokey Bear's resting place! Pay your respects and learn about his amazing story! If you grew up with Smokey, then you have to visit. 
  • My generation heard about Smokey Bear on Wonderful World of Disney or watching films at school. As an adult, it was great to see Smokey's grave. The place can make you feel sad. 
  • If you are in the area, take a little time and visit this park. This is a nice history of Smokey the Bear, with a short video, lots of posters and the history of Smokey. There is a small wooded park y...  more »

  • It's a family tradition to go to this museum every time we go to New Mexico. (Which is not often) I'm 35 now and I still get just as excited as I did the first time I went. Lots of facts to read, trivia game, coloring pages, and a short film to watch. There is also a trail outside to walk. They also have a small gift shop as well. The staff is always friendly. It's a great place for people of all ages.
  • Very nice little park. I didn't know the story of Smokey the Bear but this place explained it well in a very cheaply priced museum. The bear's grave site is located within a nice park that takes about 10 minutes to walk through.
  • Nice little park, friendly staff. They need to get someone to put on a costume for ten minutes every hour to put smiles on the little kiddos faces my 3 yr old was disappointed he didn't get to see "Smokey Bear" places like this with so much history and true Americana are losing ground to Craporate America heck- even a Rainforest Cafe will stick someone in a Frog Suit doesn't seem too much to ask... If you have little ones there's a nice little public park behind the museum.
  • Informative and interesting, great place to stop especially for kids.
  • Relaxing, change of pace and we all owe Smokey a tribute.
