Great place for children and adults alike. Everything from antique farm equipment to hand made quilts. Lots of farm animals - even a milking barn you can visit to watch a milking and learn what milk products are used for - TV screens?!?!?

Many exhibits for little kids to adults. Staff was kind and helpful. Attendance looks to suffer due to location, but I think they are working on relocating to the univ area. I would have liked to look and read through more of the displays, but kids have to keep moving. Maybe need kids and adult areas together more. Low admission... More

So much to learn and do. We took the guided tour and it was fascinating. Our city raised grandson learned so much. It's far easier to learn from a stranger than an authority figure. We adults loved the history and innovative insights. Great place to play and learn.

Leaving Texas on a two month road trip, we head toward Las Cruces, known as "The City of the Crosses," and is the second largest city in the state. We wanted to learn about the farmers, ranchers, soldiers, and others who shaped this beautiful state. Been through NM, but thought a stop at the farm would give us a good... More

This museum is just exactly what the name implies. The facility is absolutely wonderful. Even if you don't care about farming, (I do), this is a great facility to find out about the agriculture industry in early New Mexico.
