We visit the museum whenever we're in Las Cruces. We have never been disappointed in the exhibitions there. The show there now is Chicanitas, small paintings from Cheech Marin's collection. Very nice with some memorable artists that I will follow. Another show that I liked were WPA artists in New Mexico and contemporary ceramics. The personnel are helpful and friendly.

This museum is far and above one's expectations for a town the size of Las Cruces. Most of the special exhibitions are outstanding, and after your visit you can cross the little plaza to visit the Branigan Cultural Center, also almost always a delight!

You must see what Las Cruces has to offer. So much history to tell in this town. And while you're there Eat at the Double Eagle..you won't regret it!

We went to see the Bison exhibit and thoroughly enjoyed it, plus the rest of the museum. The exhibit had something for all ages - games for young kids, music, visual information - very well done and very enjoyable.

It was so much more than I expected. We stopped by looking to kill a little time before we could check into our motel. We ended up staying a couple of hours because there was so much to see. Very impressed with this museum.

The staff makes heroic efforts considering their extremely limited budget.
