quick visit because there was a fund raising rug auction

The "old" gas/oil drilling equipment is interesting to see and they are planning a new exhibit about natural gas and oil. The current exhibit is on Egypt and we did not view it.

We went to this exhibit allowing 1 hour. We could have easily spent 3-4 hours. It began with a 3-D movie which lasted about 20 mins. It laid a good foundation for the exhibit. Unfortunately we had to breeze through fairly quickly but there is the opportunity for learning and enjoyment for all ages and abilities. Lots of hands on... More

Through April of 2015 they have an Egypt, Mummy, Pyramid touring exhibit that was very educational and worth the time to stop and visit. I would call them for more detailed information but I would highly recommend you stop by and check it out. My understanding is that there will be something else in its place after this one leaves.

A nice museum that gives you an understanding of history, economics, culture and land. Don't let the size mislead you it is quality. Special note - they change the "featured" exhibit from te to time so don't think if you have been once you have seen it all.

We were pleasantly surprised when we stopped into this Museum. They had a wonderful Indian rug exhibit and a very informative historical exhibit on trading posts in the area, including recordings of old-timers involved in them. Well done.

I had some time to kill, so I visited this museum for about an hour or so. The building is well maintained--and nice and cool, which was a nice relief in the August heat. There were some interesting exhibits (beautiful Navajo rugs, a Connie Mack baseball area, dinosaurs, etc.--but the museum is a bit sparse at this time. I was... More

It is a beautiful facility. They had a baseball exhibit and Indian tapestries when we were there. And it backs up to the river, so the "backyard" area is worth a visit. And you can get lots of maps and brochures while you are there.

The NM Museum of Natural History and Science has loaned their T Rex to the Farmington Museum for a few months. You really need to go see Stan!

Farmington's fairly new museum is well done, and is by the river, and is host to non-museum events, such as a chili cook off. The building is modern and comfortable. There is a scientific and historical display about local gas and oil production, a large collection of Navajo rugs, and a reproduction of an old time general store with a... More

Fascinating collection of antique Navaho Blankets and rugs here. Old Model T Ford is in a separate local history wing. A brand new exhibit just opened containing prehistoric fossils and a skeleton of a large T-rex, on loan from the Albuquerque Museum of Natural History and Science. Ask for a tour from 'Bob.' He's lived in Farmington since 1948!
