“Some Very Nice Exhibitions”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

We visit the museum whenever we're in Las Cruces. We have never been disappointed in the exhibitions there. The show there now is Chicanitas, small paintings from Cheech Marin's collection. Very nice with some memorable artists that I will follow. Another show that I liked were WPA artists in New Mexico and contemporary ceramics. The personnel are helpful and friendly.

“Great Museum in many ways”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2014

The Museum of Fine Arts and Culture, I believe, includes The Branigan just across the walkway. As far as museums go, compared to big city museums, the complex is fairly simple and small. But, their displays are first class, varied, rotated often, and free! Apart from the displays and art shows, the museum complex does so much more for Las Cruces. They host art classes, have guest lecturers and musicians, and encourage the arts in the community by making their facilities accessible. The displays in the main art museum are always marvelously set up and skillfully lighted. And, it isn't just small town art. They show international traveling shows that have included Dali prints and old Asian pen and ink drawings (which were breathtaking). This latest show is of local high school senior art and it is marvelous in its content and display. They are a real asset to the community.

“Always worth a visit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

This museum is far and above one's expectations for a town the size of Las Cruces. Most of the special exhibitions are outstanding, and after your visit you can cross the little plaza to visit the Branigan Cultural Center, also almost always a delight!

“More than you think...”

You must see what Las Cruces has to offer. So much history to tell in this town. And while you're there Eat at the Double Eagle..you won't regret it!

“Branigan Cultural Center”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

We went to see the Bison exhibit and thoroughly enjoyed it, plus the rest of the museum. The exhibit had something for all ages - games for young kids, music, visual information - very well done and very enjoyable.
