Great small town museum

This is one of the best small town museums I've ever been to. Their early American Indian pottery is as good as Santa Fe's.

It was a nice experience. I lived thatbthere was every little detail about the life of the indians. Loved the poctures and the objects from the old days. The store had some really cute souvenirs! I'm glad I had the chance to visit.

The museum is larger than one might think. A large assortment of pottery and of course an abundance of the Hot Springs to Truth or Consequences name change history. Folks at the museum were easy going and helpful.

There is a lot of history in this small museum! I enjoyed every moment of it. The gift shop is great too with good pricing. This is a must stop and see place. Small but well worth the visit?!

Had a great trip to T or C with my mom quite a while back...this is a wonderful museum - get the story of how Hot Springs became Truth or Consequences and lots of Ralph Edwards memorabilia and more. Worth the trip!

This place was fun and interesting museum. Nice little gift shop. Plan to spend an hour or so there. $5 entrance fee. Native American and old western displays. Even a few fossils and special stone displays. Enjoy!

This is a well kept and displayed museum, showcasing all of the areas history from the escavation of a mastadon to an actual 1800's cabin that has been attached to the museum. It also covers the building of the dam, Geronimo and an extensive native american pottery/arrowhead display.

The museum is very extensive, it is well organized and the staff is very helpful and friendly. The only drawback I could see is that it was very warm inside. They need better air conditioning. Other than that, I would recommend it to anyone.

This museum is located in downtown Truth or Consequences, NM and is a multi-room facility with historic accounts of ranching, previous Native American inhabitants, and the hot springs which made this town 'famous.' Also worth visiting is a special room devoted to Ralph Edwards' efforts in 1950 (10th anniversary of his network radio show) to find a USA city which... More

We were camping in the area and learned we were in Truth or Consequences during their annual *FIESTA*. What a treat, small town Americana at its best. As part of the Fiesta, admission to the Geronimo Springs Museum was free (we donated anyway, it was really good!). The best thing about the museum is how "hands-on" it is. So many... More
