Beautiful exhibits and very educational. My 12 yrs old son was impressed even though he is not an artsy student. My in-laws from GA really enjoyed the visit as well.

I love the peace and quiet to take everything in. I love the displays they have. I love that you're not bothered and can go at your own pace.

The museum is good, but it's always been the same for as long as i can remember (20+ years). The art and exhibits are all the same with few additions.

Average fair but the sellers were all very nice and the had some unique items. Lots of western item as expected. An amazing artist from Ruidoso made some lovely wind chimes from reclaimed silverware.

In addition to Peter Hurd paintings, the rocket and local history exhibits are all very interesting and well done.

Nice, small museum packed with great exhibits, including local artists and history including Robert Goddard, Western History and Beyond, contemporary and classic works from Peter Hurd, Henriette Wyeth, and Carlos Quinto Kemm. Also a few Georgia O'Keeffe pieces, and a well stocked gift store. Admission is free, but donations are appreciated.

I was pleasantly surprised by this museum! They do have a Georgia O'keeffe aping worth the Goddard space lab. And, the native American displays are stunning.
