    Very interesting inside exhibits on the history of farming and ranching in New Mexico. Beautiful cactus gardens outside. Steer, sheep, etc outside for the kids but too hot in August. $5 admission fee.  more »

    The front desk people and everyone else at the museum were super friendly. You get to see a somewhat working farm and we saw a caw get milked while the cowboy explained how the machine worked to milk the cow as well as letting us know how much the cow produced as well as the care of the cow. The permanent exhibits about life in New Mexico were well done. If you're in the area, definitely a place I'd recommend for a couple of hours.

    This is a gem of a place. Nicely kept outdoors and indoors. Kids love it and so did I. Be sure and look up as you approach the entryway. You'll see their adopted guest hiding in the rafters above.
