“Arts and crafts fair”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2014

Average fair but the sellers were all very nice and the had some unique items. Lots of western item as expected. An amazing artist from Ruidoso made some lovely wind chimes from reclaimed silverware.

In addition to Peter Hurd paintings, the rocket and local history exhibits are all very interesting and well done.

“Great museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2014

Nice, small museum packed with great exhibits, including local artists and history including Robert Goddard, Western History and Beyond, contemporary and classic works from Peter Hurd, Henriette Wyeth, and Carlos Quinto Kemm. Also a few Georgia O'Keeffe pieces, and a well stocked gift store. Admission is free, but donations are appreciated.

“Don't miss this”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2014

I was pleasantly surprised by this museum! They do have a Georgia O'keeffe aping worth the Goddard space lab. And, the native American displays are stunning.

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2014

Most of the displays are newspaper clippings although there is information about Air Force pilots sworn to secrecy and civilians threatened with horrible things if they spoke of the incident. A radio broadcast plays on an old radio with a tickertape machine next to it and a display of mechanical "aliens" stand around a sad looking saucer. Downtown looks like any other except with an alien theme. Somehow I thought it would be more exciting.
