“Museum of Nature and Science”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

Very well presented displays done with children in mind.. Very pleased with the reaction of my 10 year old grandson to all that he viewed especially the astronomy exhibit. Enjoyed the visit and interaction of children visiting and their prolonged interest in exhibits. Etta Kaufman

“City Free Museum System (donations accepted)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

This month a great exhibit from the collection of Cheech Marin (of old Cheech & Chong fame) who is a big promoter of Chicano Art. He even came for opening of exhibit, spoke, autographed. Exhibits usually change monthly at the first part of the month. The week before the first Friday is usually closed as changing exhibits.

“It's fairly new but worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

The museum has a lot of space and it is not all in use as yet. But it is a very interesting place and offers a lot for visitors to take in. There are exhibits especially for children who will enjoy their visit as well. I recommend it.

“Must See”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014

This is not a BIG museum but it is a definite must see if youre in Las Cruces.They have exhibits of dinosaur fossils and a section of dinosaur trackway. They also have exhibits of desert wildlife.Well worth the trip.And it is next door to the art museum. Go on Wednesday, there is a craft market just down the street.
