A wonderful museum for history buffs and tourists. The wild west, Indigenous history and the story behind the town's name. Sadly we didn't have enough time to really read all of the information.

We stopped here because we were in town. I did not expect much but was pleasantly surprise. This is a well appointed museum dealing with the history of the area. We spent a lot longer time inside that I thought possible. The exhibits were extremely interesting and I learn some facts that I didn't know going in. The staff were... More

Lots of rooms with exhibits of various time periods from prehistoric to 1950's. Lots of information on surrounding small towns also. We spent two hours there and could have spent a lot more. $6.00 for adults or $5.00 for senior citizens. Probably the best small town museum I have visited.

If you ever wondered how and why these small towns sprung up way out here in southern n.m., this self guided tour of the local history in the museum will intrigue you . Spent hours reading and immersing myself with the past. Well worth the time.

Geronimo Springs Museum has a very good selection of area historical facts and artifacts.The native american, geological and dinosaur artifacts are abundant. I like that they make changes to the museum ever few months with different displays and information. I have visited the museum a few times and will visit again.

This little museum captures the complete history of the area around Truth or Consequences, from dinosaurs to prehistoric natives, ranchers, Apaches, to the construction of Elephant Butte dam. We enjoyed all the information, and they also have a nice little book store filled with local interest books.

There is a lot to see in this small town museum. Well worth the price of admission and many of the local hotels offer discount coupons if you ask at your motel / hotel.

We only had one hour to see the museum, wish we had all day. There is so much to see in this multi room museum. From fossils and indian pottery to an entire area devoted to the show Truth or Consequences and everything in between. Great museum.

I'm not usually interested in small town museums since I lived in NYC for about 40 years. Jaded? Me? Perhaps however, I wanted to get to know a little about this town. I read something about Ojo Caliente thinking that they were talking about the spa up past Santa Fe but they were not! Before this town was named Truth... More
