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

There's a lot in this cramped, dusty little building. Some of it is interesting - a great collection of ancient Indian pottery and figurines (some rather R-rated!), oddly erotic murals of Indians and Conquistadors, and some info on the woman warrior Lozen. But overall, it's no different from most small-town, regional museums: dusty, not well lit or preserved, with an... More

I love to come to this place and just wander. My family is from the town and there is memorabila that has a direct tie to them. It is a step back in time and my heart as well. But even for a non - native of the town, there is so much to learn about the little city, once... More

Really comprehensive history of the town and area. Clearly not professionally curated, which is part of the charm - a lot of time and commitment went into the exhibits, and I believe the staff is all volunteers. We looked through the whole place in 1.5 or 2 hours.

The amount of history to be found here is impressive for a small museum. There are several rooms filled with artifacts from native Americans to the present day. The Geronimo room is very impressive with detailed history of his family. A room is dedicated to Ralph Edwards who is credited with the naming of the city, "Truth or Consequences". There... More
