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 museum had something for everyone. I was surprised at how long I stayed and could have stayed longer! I especially enjoyed reading about the history of the town and the name change.

What a great museum! A fantastic Indian pottery collection that is one of the best in the world. A fantastic collection of Ralph Edwards and Truth or Consequences, NM Fiesta memorabilia. Great local history collection dating back 100+ years. Even good historical research materials. This place is a gem of the southwest.

This is an awesome museum filled with interesting items from Sierra County and New Mexico. There is an extensive collection of well preserved pottery, local artifacts, new books and a great gift shop filled with local arts and crafts. Not to mention the knowledgeable and friendly staff!
