“Great For the Family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

The New Mexico Farm and Ranch Heritage Museum is a great place to take the family. It is well maintained and your children will learn so much in a fun manner it more than makes up for the entrance fee. If you do not race through it, it very easily can work into a two day event. It has a small snack bar to quell you hunger and an amazing staff.

“A must see if you have children”

This is something you need to take your children to they will really enjoy it. The live animals and old west adventure will tickle their imaginations. As an adult I still like going their from time to time.

“A gem of a museum, great for kids to view cattle and milking, great for adults to learn about the area and the changing art exh”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

A surprising museum, unlike any others you may have been to. Old farm and Ranch equipment, live cattle, inside native American displays, general store, wagons and art. Well worth a visit when you are in the area.

“Beatiful views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

This museum is actually fun to visit. It is about farming and agriculture. There is so much in terms of displays, exhibits, animals, and views. There are so many places to take gorgeous pictures because it is so rustic, full or character, and culture. It is fun for the whole family.

“Excellent View of Farming in New Mexico”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

My husband was born and raised in a farm in the Midwest, so this was a must see. We could have spent two days looking, reading and learning about farming in New Mexico. Be sure and see the video clip about "Slim" the saddle maker and all of the live stock. All of the animals are very friendly and many of them will follow you along the fence line. Our favorite was the "old" long horn steer. He is 24 and was so nice to pose for several pictures. There is a lot of farm machinery and lots or art! Plan to spend several hours here if you are I interested in the history of farming.
