  • This place is so interesting. It's pulls me in every time. Been here like 20 times! Always stop to visit.
  • Worth the stop and a very quick drive off of Hwy 84/60
  • Way cooler than I was expecting, very enjoyabe and dog friendly too!
  • A very educational experience. Totally off the "major interstate highway," however, a place to visit with the family! All the employees were awesome, made my sister & I feel welcome and shared their knowledge freely. I highly recommend to all travelers!
  • For a place in the middle of nowhere, Fort Sumner had a lot of history happen there. It's establishment during the Civil War is not exactly an event we take pride in today as a shining moment in our country's history. Quite the opposite, this fort was established as a concentration camp for a number of Indian peoples who died here. The Bosque-Redondo Museum is wonderful in helping you understand it. Later this old fort was the home of Lucien Maxwell who had been the owner of the largest land-grant in America. This was a stopping point for Charles Goodnight and the place where his partner Oliver Loving of the Goodnight-Loving Cattle Drive died after suffering a mortal wound in an Indian raid. Also the location where Billy the Kid was gunned down by Pat Garrett.
