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.

I was surprised how informative and realistic this place is. Lots of great things to see and do inside and outside. I don't think I will ever forget the Barn owls that greeted us in the rafters at the opening to the Museum. That was definitely extra special.

My lady and I live in town and never went the museum before, so we decided to go on a Sunday afternoon. Veteran discount. We grew up in rural NM on the eastern side of the state, so I'm not too sure why the front desk lady said they had all the brands of NM, because they are missing a... More

If you want to entertain your company or just take your family out for a fun day this is the place. There is something for everyone at the NM Farm and Ranch Heritage Museum. I have gone out there now several times to photograph or just to see the new art shows and exhibits. The live animal exhibit is really... More

The New Mexico Farm and Ranch Heritage Museum is a great place to take the family. It is well maintained and your children will learn so much in a fun manner it more than makes up for the entrance fee. If you do not race through it, it very easily can work into a two day event. It has a... More

A surprising museum, unlike any others you may have been to. Old farm and Ranch equipment, live cattle, inside native American displays, general store, wagons and art. Well worth a visit when you are in the area.
