Most small towns have a "museum" but Deming has a MUSEUM! There are some eclectic collections such as Bud Weiser steins and whiskey bottles, but Deming has the largest display in the world of Mimbres Indian pottery. It will take at least 3 hours to go through this museum so plan accordingly.

What a collection of Deming, USA and World History. Well displayed collections in a clean, large, building that hasn't deteriorated over a period of years. It has only improved! Donations accepted and would recommend as they are definitely putting the money to good use. Don't have two hours, it is worth getting off the Interstate and walk through. You won't... More

This is a fabulous museum with all volunteer staff that seem to love their duties. They are very knowledgeable and willing to answer questions. The selection ranges from old photos, furniture, musical items, vehicles, rocks and minerals. It has a main street set up that is really great! Plan to spend at least 2 hours if not more to see...

Filled with collections donated mostly by local people, including amateur archaeologists, this old USO facility is chic-a-bloc with rare Mimbres pottery, Navajo blankets, a fully outfitted chuck wagon, nutcrackers, collectable whiskey bottles, taxidermy, WWII memorabilia including a Norden bombsight, old photos, art, china, and Teddy-Bear Roosevelt books. Something for every one. Delightful volunteer staff. Spent two delightful hours there.

We planned a 2 hour visit at this great museum, and quickly realized we needed to make a return visit because there is so much to see. The Mimbres pottery is what attracted us to the museum, but the rest of the exhibits are amazing and compelling! It has everything from Victorian furnishing and china, to railroad memorabilia, to antique... More

I've been to many museums and never have seen one as well put together and taken care of as the one here in Deming. So much history....so many artifacts and art pieces. A history buff's dream!!! Can't say enough about this place...if you are ever in the area.... it's well worth while to check it out!!!

Lots of people put Deming down as a cultural backwater, but this museum must be seen. We like Deming, the restaurants, the people, the museum, the Rockhound Round-up! Three cheers for Deming.

We were in Deming for a day trip in March 2015. After lunch at Irma’s we decided to walk around the area and stumbled on the Deming Luna Mimbres Museum. There is no entry fee, but a donation is requested. It took about two hours to tour the entire museum. There are a wide variety of exhibits and something for... More

We were plesantly surprised that this was such a well annointed museum for such a small town. I was not expecting much when we went here. They have so many things. It was just one room after another filled to the brim with artifacts.....

We went to this museum just to have a look - no big expectations - and we were pleasantly surprised by the depth and breadth of their offerings! Great exhibit of Mimbres Indian pottery, some outstanding paintings (the one by Günther Widforss of the Grand Canyon is simply magnificent), collections reflecting the Wild West, and memorable exhibition for our veterans...
