My girlfriends thought we would run by and see the Museum on a recent visit, we were pleasantly surprised to find much more. Our "quick" stop lasted about an hour and a half. We could have spent even more time if our schedule would have allowed. Really enjoyed the local history and the multiple building that told that story. Well... More

Our second trip to Cloudcroft, but first time to visit the Museum. From the road, it doesn't look like much, but once on the grounds, it is amazing. They really have a lot of artifacts from early NM pioneer days, as well as some very interesting collections of military memorabilia, ladies fashions from the early 1900's, and some very cool...

My wife and our 4 daughters stopped in here while staying in a nearby house for a week. Though clearly a small town operation on a limited budget it was a surprisingly well done and expansive view of the history of Cloudcroft and the turn of the century old West. Frankly the fact that it was a low budget operation... More

This is a charming small museum. The grounds were beautiful with lots of exhibits. A wonderful place to take the kids to gain a historical retrospect and appreciation of how people lived back in the old days. From what we gained, living in the Sacramento Mountains was challenging, but we could see how it shaped this village's character. Check it... More

Want to get cool and laugh? We went to Cloudcroft and attended the melodrama with the Cloudcroft Light Opera Company (CLOC). Nothing is more fun than booing the villan and cheering the hero with a temperature in the high 60's. There were great puns and double entendres. It was their last performance of the season. We can hardly wait until... More
