Really neat! This is a great place to visit no matter your age. Farm animals to pet and learn about, great art and historical collections to experience. Perfect place to bring schools and groups to! They provide interpretive tours with docents and staff.

Interesting, informative and fun. The magnificent museum is attractive, well done, spacious and flows nicely. We enjoyed a display of balloon shooting (marksmanship) on horseback and talking to some of the individual riders. Unfortunately, we were off season so some of the activities mentioned were absent, but my husband especially appreciated the evolution of farm machinery..

The place is very clean and you can see and learn about farm animals. Their habits and other particulars of them. You can also see history of the area that is represented. They also have a great little gift shop to buy cheap pistachio products. The nice thing is that you can go to the gift shop without paying the... More

The history of farming and ranching in New Mexico is so beautifully displayed. Not a lot of fluff but enough information to keep one interested.

The grounds are a working ranch with livestock barns and greenhouses, working blacksmith shop and more. The museum has very nice display of farm implements and machinery, pioneer life exhibits and agriculture education. Lots to see and do for children!

Great historical museum with close up and hands on opportunities. Enjoy a live milking program, watch the blacksmith make various items of the past and current times (usually has a memo for the younger set). See all the farm animals by a walking tour or a riding tour around the farm yard, many exhibits inside displaying the generations of farming... More

This was a great event to learn more about New Mexico's past by meeting a variety of characters over the last 100 years. I will attend this "highlight" again in 2015 and looking forward to it. Dislikes: Not much and if, that the atmosphere was a little stiff.
