We were out and about a bit early for another museum in town an needed to pass an hour or so and we stumbled upon this gem of a community museum. There is just so much local history in this museum. Massive amounts of native american pottery sherds from the area from long ago that could use some updated displays... More

Wow, was this museum full of stuff! Two main floors of the building, the basement, outbuilding, and large items around the lot. The rest rooms were clean and modern, and the lady working the front counter was very friendly. But much of the 'stuff' wasn't well organized or presented, limiting the educational potential.

If you like history you will love this museum. The lady at the entrance was nice, friendly and knowledgeable. My 12 year old son loved looking at all the artifacts and walking through the caboose outside. I especially liked the old Boy Scout uniform and Boy Scout life guard uniform. One of my son's is a BSA certified life guard... More

Three floors full of historical items from Tucumcari's past. They have more stuff than they can display - they could use some help.

Wow! This is an amazing museum! It has three levels that are packed full of rich history of the local area! The staff is very knowledgeable and super friendly. There are other buildings that contain even more pieces of history. I will definitely go back! Too much to see in one trip! Awesome! Don't miss this great opportunity to visit... More

Each room is packed with items that tell the story of Tucumcari through individual items. From clothing and personal items, to prehistoric bones, wagons, airplanes, and farming implements. So many things, yet quite nicely organized. I'd like to go back.
