We visited on a Sunday afternoon and had read the good reviews on Tripadvisor, but were still blown away by how much the museum had to offer. You can definitely tell the community cares about this piece of history and have done all they can to make it a staple of the community- and they have surpassed that!! There isn't... More

Spent a few hours this morning. This is a donation museum and a awesome job compiling and arranging this museum. A must see. Plan at least several hours or two trips. A very nice gift shop with local craft work. Loved it.

I've visited museums all over North America and found this sweet little museum interesting and charming. There are displays on the pre-history and history of the region, as well as numerous art works. The place was sunny and clean and fairly well laid out. My main interest was in their collection of Mimbres pottery. They have a good-sized collection and... More

The Deming Luna Mimbres Museum in Deming, NM was a pleasant surprise. We've been in Deming several times but never went to the museum. We were greeted by a friendly volunteer who told us about how the museum was laid out and gave us a map. There is not only the usual historic items about the town and the area... More

This museum is amazing for all it has in it, how well it's cared for and the volunteers that make it happen. From Mimbres pottery to a fantastic doll and children's toy collection to a walk through downtown of store fronts............You get the idea and there's a lot more. Don't miss it.

We have driven through Deming several times but this was our first time to stop and explore. "Museum" does not adequately define this collection. Not only does it provide a perspective into the history of the native people who inhabited this area from as far back as 1100 AD but it is a diverse showcase of Americana. Everything from well...

For a smaller size town this museum is spectacular. To think we have been driving through/by Deming for years and never knew this existed. It is definitely worth a stop if you have any interest in the history of the area.

We spent a couple hours here and didn't even see it all. It was absolutely fabulous. It has a bit of everything for everyone. There are toys and dolls, military memorabilia, old west stuff, musical instruments, old town shops, of course the pottery that they are famous for. This was time well spent. If you are in the area or... More

Great comprehensive collection of local historical items with free admission. Our favorite section was the Mimbres pottery display. In addition, they have many nice modern pieces on display at the entrance. Convenient parking and easy access. Highly recommended.
