To praise the founders of desertification in the west as "heroes" due to their overgrazing practices for more than 100 years is blasphemy. They shouldn't be building "museums" to these people that helped create global warming, but build gas farms to suck up the farts of methane from all their cows. Terrible place...

Very interesting and educational. Inexpensive fees and you can go on your own for a self guided tour of the entire complex. The flow of the exhibits were done so well. You could start at the earliest time farming and ranching began and work your way to the latest in New Mexico agriculture. My wife and I went on a... More

The museum, which is part of the New Mexico Culture Pass system, has extensive outdoor exhibits as well as very good art & history exhibits. We arrived early to beat the worst of the heat and crossed the bridge to the old farm machinery and the dairy area, but didn't visit the other livestock venues. We found the volunteer docents...

I loved all the things you could learn there. We watched an ironsmith make a nail. it is neat to see all the animals and the kids loved it. It was really inexpensive for the whole family and they offered a military discount.

As a first time parent, I am always on the look out for places to take my 2 (almost 3)year old. I saw an ad for this in one of those free papers. I had never heard of it before. WOW! I will be going here once a month or once every two months, but not during the summer. The... More

The Farm and Ranch Heritage Museum is a couple hundred acres of exhibits -- both static and live -- depcting life in the Southwest from 1600 up to today. Several of the acres house the museum's livestock, including different breeds of cattle, sheep and goats, not to mention an occasional glimpse of wildlife such as Roadrunners, Jack Rabbits and Quail....

We lived in Las Cruces for 2 years before we got around to visiting this museum, and now I regret we took so long to get there. It's a museum that documents exactly what it says: the history of farming and ranching in New Mexico, which is basically the history of the state. The exhibits are very interesting, including everything... More
