“Nice clean and informative”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

May seem to be out of the way , it is worth your time . Traveling exhibits rotate thru permanent pieces. The story of farmers and ranchers and many things of the historical southwest.
Out buildings and Barns contain Long Horn Cattle to a milking station. a nice gift store and movie theater used for special occasions. A spectacular view of the Organ mountains , a perfect setting for many beautiful weddings held there.
Resonable entrence fee . One of the better Venues in Las Cruces.

“Nice Museum of Local History”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

The New Mexico Farm and Ranch Museum provides some good attractions, well suited for visitors to New Mexico who are unfamiliar with life in these parts. My wife and I especially enjoyed the longhorn cattle on display, which give an example of the type of beef cattle used in the Old West. The museum of local history was also quite interesting and informative.

“Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014

This is a great place to visit. You can spend half a day looking at all the cool stuff . Great people working there too. Take the guided tour of the outside area,it is much better than just walking around.There are lots of great things to see indoors too.

“A day at the museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014

This facility gives another spin on a day at the museum. Outdoors is very interactive with farm and ranch animals. Indoors are great displays. Have been there for Cowboy Days, Gem Show and just to enjoy it in general.

“what an educational and historic place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2014

If you want to sample an experience what life was like on the good old American farm this is your place. No theme park here, you can enjoy an included guided golf cart ride around the working museum/farm and see real farm animals. Young children will really love the place and so will most everyone else.
