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...

Everyone we spoke with told us this museum is a "must see". Well they were right ! This is a free museum run almost entirely by volunteers. We're don't Usually visit too many museum but this had so many different rooms and all were displayed very well. It was quite an experience visiting this large museum.

Who would have thought the little town of Deming, NM would have such a fun museum. Set in an historic USO building, it specializes in prehistoric pottery, Mimbres pottery primarily, but also tons of Casas Grandes pottery. There are also lots of exhibits on local history, which goes back at least a couple hundred years. The exhibits are well-conceived and... More

We visited the museum during a short stay in Deming and wow, what a pleasant surprise. The museum was huge and contained a ton of old artifacts from the history of Deming. My 6 year old son loved the real life chuck wagon and all the historical vehicles. I also liked the area with the different rooms from the 1800s.... More

It is obvious the townspeople have their hearts in this place! We were astounded by its size and also with the variety of collections. As others have said, there is something of interest for everyone and you need over an hour to just skim over the hightlights! You could spend much more time there, but if you are traveling it...

This museum is a must see if you are in Deming. There is something for everyone in here. I like the old pottery, dishes, and toys! Also has one of the biggest rock collections I have ever seen!! No admission, just donation.
