We were camping in the area and learned we were in Truth or Consequences during their annual *FIESTA*. What a treat, small town Americana at its best. As part of the Fiesta, admission to the Geronimo Springs Museum was free (we donated anyway, it was really good!). The best thing about the museum is how "hands-on" it is. So many... More

The pottery and other artifacts are extensive. Good selection in the bookstore area. Fossils and local stories were fun to view.

It was worthwhile to take an hour to wander through this interesting museum. The Native American collection, especially the pottery, was quite impressive. The exhibits are not sophisticated, but provide a great deal of information on the history of the town and the area, including the town's name change. The docent was delightful!

would recommend 1-2 hours to see everything here but due to limited time you can still get a feel for things in 30-40 minutes. AAA/AARP/Senior discounts. Lots of Truth or Consequences TV show paraphernalia. Fiesta dresses that have long gone out of vogue but fabulous to see and to think of the elaborate hand work that went into making these... More

Kind of a hidden gem, I think. They have a lot of variety from the mammoth and mastodon skulls, to the Old West, all the way to the Ralph Edwards room! I believe kids would love it too. We were with a tour and didn't have a lot of time; could have stayed longer.

A very interesting museum about Indian and local history, Ralph Edwards influence on the town of Hot Springs, and how the name was changed to Truth or Consequences. Many interesting displays and pictures.

What a varied treat this Museum is - especially good for kids, I think. The fossils are really interesting and varied (Mastodon skulls and droppings for instance); there is a collection of Pre-Hispanic art, weapons and pottery, and the Wild West section taught me a great deal. Not only did each rancher have his own brand, but characteristic barb wire... More

This is an interesting museum with lots of different type items on display from an incredible native American pottery collection to mastadon and mammoth skulls to Ralph Edwards T or C memorabilia. Definitely worth a visit.
