  • Bob, our tour guide was great! Learned a lot about farming and ranching in NM. WELL worth the trip. Great cowboy art in the museum and best gift shop in NM. Well run museum. We would go back!  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.
  • Extremely Friendly staff.! Very informative. Enjoyed every bit of it! Lots of exhibits to view lots of stuff for information. Plenty of activities to do with the children. And lots of demonstration exhibits.
  • Nice tour. Great information. Staff is very knowledgeable
  • It Is a very nice facility with helpful people and well marked exhibits. It was a nice walk, too.
  • 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.
