There are some great displays here about the local history. There are also a lot of very old fossils on display. Attached to the museum is a replica of an old cabin. There are also old clothes, saddles, and pottery.

If you find yourself anywhere near T or C, NM, you absolutely must go see the Geronimo Springs Museum. The historical perspective alone is worth the trip, but just wait until you feast your eyes on the Native American Pottery display! This is not a formal, public museum with extensive curation. For those who get weary of the well-rehearsed, dispassionate... More

Professional, friendly, informative, and great artifacts from by gone eras, it covers the mimbres, dinosaurs, cowboys, and recent personalities. It has an area for children. You can even tough a dinosaurs skull. The pottery exhibits are timeless. Well worth a stop and your fee will continue to support their efforts.

Of the things to do in Elephant Butte (only 7 miles from) Truth or Consequences,NM we made seeing this museum a priority. We were not disappointed. There is such a wide variety of displays, including a large portion devoted to Geronimo's history in the area, as well as other Indians. Then there is the FACT that Ralph Edwards staff for... More

They've done a nice job preserving the rich history of the area and there seems to be a little bit of something for everybody. I enjoyed it. You will too. My favorite spot was a small corner in the back. Apparently that part of the building was once a saloon and they uncovered a small section of the wooden dance... More

The museum has some very cool old artifacts covering the area's history from Native Americans through Old West and all the way into the Truth or Consequences game show tie in to the current name. I enjoyed seeing many of the items on display but found that our boys, aged 5- 7, lost interest quickly and we spent more time... More

I think they can do more, but lack of funding keeps it from being better. Nice walk to and from the hotel. I would like to see them stay open late in the summer when it is hot.

For a small town this museum is amazingly complete. Parking was on the street right in front. The admission, for a senior citizen, was $5.00 and worth every penny. Plan to spend at least an hour, but better two at this place.

Located in the middle of the oddly named town of Truth or Consequences, this is really a nice museum. Many motels in town can give you a coupon for free admission, which is even better. A nice little gift shop is attached. Next to the building is a fountain containing warm water from the hot springs, which originally (and more... More
