Anyone interested in agriculture and especially the history of agriculture in the desert southwest should make the time for a visit to this museum, very well done both inside and out. There is often special exhibits well worth checking out for locals and visitors.

not much to do there on a cold day without activities. Only the museum displays with some local history might interest some people

Museum with indoor exhibits and animals outside. A cart tour with a guide gives you info on the history of the area with the role animals play. Cattle, horses, sheep. Indigenous to the area. Give yourself plenty of time. It can tale several hours.

As a volunteer as a big sister I thought it would be fun to take my little sister to learn a bit more about New Mexico. We where able to watch the blacksmith make nails and other objects. Was a fun and interesting experience.

This is a fantastic museum. As we have traveled the country, we have often lamented the lack of good agricultural museums. This is a great agricultural museum and much more. It is a large place with exhibits inside and out. We especially enjoyed the Dairy Barn with its description of dairy cow breeds and videos of cheese and ice cream... More

The exhibits are changing frequently, so return visits always will have new things to see. Excellent facility, very friendly and attentive staff, always ready to answer questions, make sure you take the golf cart ride around the animal pens

This museum was fantastic. There is a wonderful variety of activities all in one place. The "Cowboys:The Real Deal" exhibit was very interesting and informative. We saw maps and historical photographs, watched a video of an old-fashioned branding,and listened to cowboy music and stories at one of audio stations. The displays and signage tell a fantastic story of the cowboy's... More
