Aztec's history of human habitation goes back a thousand years, when Native Americans settled along the Animas River. Pioneer Village gives visitors the opportunity to revisit a community of the early American West. Children will enjoy climbing aboard the caboose and going in a one-room schoolhouse, just two of the many Pioneer Village buildings and exhibits. Visit Aztec Museum and Pioneer Village to learn about modern Aztec's early days.

I have followed the Aztec Museum for years. Its growth has been outstanding. It started as an 8 room retired City Hall. It is typical of many small Museums with lots of donated artifacts, but is different with the presence of an impressive collection of Cable tool drilling rigs and the Village, some of the buildings are original others are...

A lot of love and care and dedication has gone into this. We loved the displays; they were so diverse, from dolls to pottery to furniture to weapons.

We found this museum on the web and visited it. The lovely lady who welcomed us was very kind and told us everything we needed to know before visiting. We walked through the room with displayed items and enjoyed it. Especially the barbershop. Outside were some buildings from pioneer times. All in all a nice place to spend some time.

Valenty Zaharek 's cyclorama "Pecos West" has just been donated and it is worth seeing over and over. It is about 18 feet in diameter and was carved from wood over years. Clouds of dust, shadows on the mountains and painstaking carvings of animals, native American villages, and cowboys create the atmosphere. Creating more mood are the narration and the... More

Pioneer Village and Museum are a wonderful asset to this historic little town. Museum is filled with wonderful items from this area and the Village is a great outing for children and adults alike! Walking thru time into these buildings set up with all the period décor is very interesting. loved it!

It may look small from the outside but fully loaded and extends outside. So much to see from history and culture to the oil industry and geology.
