Perhaps because it's located in the more sparsely populated southern part of New Mexico, the Farm and Ranch Heritage Museum doesn't receive the foot traffic or attention it deserves. It's a beautiful facility that plays host to an ever-changing variety of exhibits offering vivid (if occasionally text-heavy) illustrations of the state's agricultural and multi-cultural history. A recent show of the... More

My visits to the Farm and Ranch Heritage Museum have always been in the context of their special programs - Cowboy Days, Ghosts of the Past, and the like. These programs are an excellent means of learning about New Mexico and the surrounding area in a fun and interactive setting. The actors are outstanding, having done their research and never... More

The dowsing expert was really interesting and now has us really intrigued with the activity! The museum appeared to be very clean and well run. We plan to come back again soon! SN:this is a... More

This place is a great place for families or couples to understand the local history based on the agriculture in Las Cruces and the Rio Grand valley.

While exploring American History across this great nation, we stumbled across the New Mexico Farm & Ranch Heritage Museum. The exhibits were well presented as it documented and explained farming history. We were also able to take a tour of the outside property where all the farm animals were located. Our tour guide was an awesome elderly woman named "Karen."... More

What a great little museum and event facility. I would not have gone if someone else had not dragged me there. Be sure to look up when you go in to the front door and see the two big, beautiful Owls that live up in the rafters, spectacular.

Great museum with a great exhibit on NM life. They have a couple of wild owls living on property and they greeted us at the entrance. Very cool. We did not explore the whole museum, only the inside. I think kids would really like the outdoor portion.
