unusual animals

the displays inside are very informative and are good for the whole family. My favorite part is the visit outside to the animals

My husband and I really enjoyed this. It is a self guided tour and we could take our time walking around. The art displays were awesome and surprising. We thought it was "just a farm museum". They had animals that were fun to watch and historical displays about the area. This was my second time going and I will go... More

Great way to learn history of farming & ranching in this area, lots of exhibits, some of them interactive. Great opportunity to see different types of livestock, including the herd of Long-Horned Cattle. Don't miss the Heart of the Desert Gift Shop for reasonably priced art & southwest food items. Try the Green Chile Pistachios - YUM!!

Thanks for the positive review. The green chile pistachios (with garlic) are my favorite, too. More

Lovely variety of farm/ranch history with beautiful art work. There are special events through the year such as a New Mexico food festival and Halloween events.

The New Mexico Farm & Ranch Museum does a great job of presenting farming & ranching life in New Mexico as it developed as the backbone of the state along with mining & gas & oil. Many of the exhibits are outdoors & are very kid friendly. But, even if the weather"s a little on the unpleasant side (which is... More

Nice little gift shop, interesting Dairy exhibition, excellent Wild West info, especially the Chuck Wagon, but the outstanding feature was the Dowsing talk and trying it out!!

Although it is small, the tour through the barns and the surrounding areas was so informative. Discussing the live farm animals or the farm equipment used during many eras. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed it!

I was attending a wedding at the museum and was able to walk around the museum too. It is a great museum telling of New Mexico history. The exhibits are very well done. There are many activities for children. I recommend this museum to everyone!

Visiting friends in Las Cruces and they took us to this gem. We spent a couple hours touring the many western and farm exhibits as well as a temporary photo exhibit of horses which was outstanding. There is so much to see and learn about western and New Mexico history, ranching and farming. There is an entire outside area we... More

This is a big museum with lots to do - wish we'd had a little more time. The exhibits inside include farm equipment, vehicles, lots of photographs, even a spinning demonstration. There were animals outside but we didn't get to check them out. A good-sized gift shop with lots of nice things, and a snack area that I don't think... More
