with lots of history from the area. It tells about the Dust Bowl era to the history of the Jewish people in New Mexico. Learned a lot about not only the area but the state/territory of New Mexico.

Chocked full of local and Great Plains history! They have a wonderful WPA exhibit. This museum is free and great place to teach the kids! Great selection of books, fact and fiction of area life to buy. Well worth the stop!
