This museum had something for everyone. I was surprised at how long I stayed and could have stayed longer! I especially enjoyed reading about the history of the town and the name change.

What a great museum! A fantastic Indian pottery collection that is one of the best in the world. A fantastic collection of Ralph Edwards and Truth or Consequences, NM Fiesta memorabilia. Great local history collection dating back 100+ years. Even good historical research materials. This place is a gem of the southwest.

This is an awesome museum filled with interesting items from Sierra County and New Mexico. There is an extensive collection of well preserved pottery, local artifacts, new books and a great gift shop filled with local arts and crafts. Not to mention the knowledgeable and friendly staff!

On prior trips through town, we'd passed this museum but never stopped. Very glad we stopped today. The staff were friendly and eager to share. And it has an amazing collection of pottery and arrowheads. The history room for the town was also cool as it included old pictures and news articles for surrounding cities. And the room about how...

We truly enjoyed our tour of this museum and appreciated the obvious pride shown by museum staff. It also served as a spot for meeting other tourists and discussing "must-see" spots in and around Truth or Consequences.
