  • It's very small, but the kids love it. The museum is always clean and well maintained.
  • It is an interesting place to visit. My gradson loves it there. They have classes on Saturday with various subjects.
  • The animal encounter talks are so interesting and you get the opportunity to touch/get up close with different animals in the museum. The staff is very knowledgeable and more than willing to teach you something new.
  • I great place to see if you have some free time. We saw all three places which were free. We still donate some money to this wonderful place. We really appreciate it. Thanks for having this place open. We really enjoyed the history and culture and knowledge your town shared with us. Thanks
  • I like this museum. It's perfect for the city off las cruces.
