The museum is a collection of old farm and cowboy equipment from years past in addition to many farm animals. It's a great place to take kids, young and old. There is a small fee to enter, less for children and seniors. There is also an inside play area for youngsters. It can be very hot in the summer so... More

This is a nice little museum that can fill a couple hours of time. Inside there's a museum. The featured exhibit while we were there was about cowboys. There's also an permanent exhibit dedicated to how things used to be in the area with old appliances and old shop fronts. There's information about history of the area as well. Outdoors... More

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...
