“Surprisingly awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

My lady and I live in town and never went the museum before, so we decided to go on a Sunday afternoon. Veteran discount. We grew up in rural NM on the eastern side of the state, so I'm not too sure why the front desk lady said they had all the brands of NM, because they are missing a bunch to include some very large ranches. Besides the lack of brands the museum was very nice and clean. The lady who ran the gift shop was very helpful with the wine, and all the staff were very nice. On Sundays they teach divining, which I think is ridiculous, but an interesting little class nonetheless.

“Family Friendly and something for everyone”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

If you want to entertain your company or just take your family out for a fun day this is the place. There is something for everyone at the NM Farm and Ranch Heritage Museum.

I have gone out there now several times to photograph or just to see the new art shows and exhibits. The live animal exhibit is really nice as well. And of course the kids will love seeing all the old farm equipment the animals and the talks that works give as well to engage them. The gift shop is nice and there is food and drink available on site.

They have numerous events and art exhibits thru out the year here. Is a must see!

“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 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.
