This was a very nice place to visit, and if you are history buff, a must see when in Ruidoso. Displays include carriages, weapons, horse memorabila.

“Wonderful history of horses & old west”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014

We really loved the history display of the west and horses. There was a wonderful display of horse carts, they had a hearse, chuck wagon kitchen and many more. An added plus was the beautiful display of quilts. If you're visiting Ruidoso, NM and love history & museums this is a must see.

“So-So”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2013

Not a whole lot there. What they have is ok, but not great and there's not much of it. Parts of the museum are interesting, but overall not a great experience. For the price of admission, I don't think this is worth it. There is so much to do in Lincoln County, that this ranks pretty low on the lists of "must do's" in Lincoln County.

“Horse Museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

Easy to get to, the place has some excellent areas to take pictures of these beautiful horses. It was located to another area of interest that was in walking distance.

“If you like horse racing, you want to see this!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

A great museum with plenty of interesting things from the old west. If you are visiting Ruidoso for the first time, it's a great place to spend a couple of hours.
