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. My wife had forgotten that a "practice" piano existed. The outside displays were amazing, and kids as well as adults would love the different buildings well presented. The docent who greeted us...

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.

What a nice surprise. My husband's great uncle was the sheriff in Aztec, NM from 1909-1916 so while in this area we decided to stop at the museum and see what we could find out. The lady there was wonderful. She pointed us to the Pioneer Village where there was several reconstructed buildings to check out, a General Store, Post... More

Inside there are a couple of rooms of limited interest, to me at least. Except for the barber's including a bath tub as would have been used. Outside there are a collection of 1900 era buildings; school ,shop ,post office ,sheriff's office, bank, church rec Very intrredting, could have Bern made better by employing actors to bring the town to...
