Gateway/Farmington Museum is a small shop inside the museum area. It includes lots of Farmington memorabilia and a touch of New Mexico history. It is a great place to shop for "incidental" gifts when you are looking for something unique and appropriate. If you don't find what you are looking forward, ask one of the friendly, knowledgeable assistants and you... More

Very interesting artifacts to see. Very children friendly. There was a wedding taking place while we were there. Very beautiful backdrop for a wedding. Outside grounds were lovely. The gift shop had something for everyone.

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.
