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

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.

This museum is actually fun to visit. It is about farming and agriculture. There is so much in terms of displays, exhibits, animals, and views. There are so many places to take gorgeous pictures because it is so rustic, full or character, and culture. It is fun for the whole family.

My husband was born and raised in a farm in the Midwest, so this was a must see. We could have spent two days looking, reading and learning about farming in New Mexico. Be sure and see the video clip about "Slim" the saddle maker and all of the live stock. All of the animals are very friendly and many... More

If you're visiting Las Cruces, NM I highly recommend seeing this museum. It is a 47 acre interactive museum that showcases the 3000 year history of New Mexico's farming and ranching heritage. Indoor displays of archaeology, culture and art. Outdoor displays of orchards, farming equipment, and farm animals including the original Mexican Corriente cattle. The Museum is open every day....
