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.

There were three things about the Deming Luna Mimbres Museum that stood out for me-the size, the wide range of exhibits (including unusual items like a 1867 square grand piano, a hand-held fan collection complete with instructions on how to "flirt", and a 4.5 billion year old meteorite), and the fact it is run by volunteers and is FREE!!!

The Museum was worth the visit. It was much larger than it looked from the outside. It is free - they have a donations box so make sure you donate something. The building is very clean and everything is well presented. Most of what is in the museum has been donated by people in the area. There are some very... More

What a nice little gem. This is a very nice little Museum and the members were very helpful and friendly. It is amazing that the citizens of this little city have managed to save so much of their past. We spent several hours and could have spent several more if we had the time. It might be worth a over... More
