This may be a smaller museum than some, but a lot of history and information. The staff was very friendly and professional. We met some volunteer ladies that were trying to organize the history books. Definitely worth the time.

This is a wonderful little museum that took us back to the days of the pioneers and before. The staff was cheerful and very helpful in terms of orienting us to the rest of the town. It's a little gem!

Even if you don't have time to tour the museum (you really should make the time) you can shop in the gift shop without paying the entrance fee to the museum.

Very interesting and informative. A small, but very well done museum. Nice little gift and book shop. Lots of interesting fossils and artifacts. Much bigger than it looks from outside! Staff is very friendly and welcomes questions.

On the way from Santa Fe to Las Cruces, we stopped in Truth or Consequences to visit the Geronimo Spring Museum. The staff there were extremely nice and pleasant.

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?!
