“Wonderful museum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

Amazing collection of not only local history, but world-class art not found anywhere else in the state! Do not miss the Native American pottery collection! New fascinating exhibits being added regularly. A must see while visiting Carlsbad! Prepare to be amazed!

“breath taking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

A true natural wonder of the world. everyone needs to see this amazing place... get there early and stay late. Take a few days to see all of the main area, it's sooooo worth it.

“Very eclectic.”

Wonderful pottery collection. Enjoyed the rifle collection. The busts of the "Taos Ten" was unique. Worst museum lighting ever.

It was my first visit to Carlsbad Caverns and it was awesome. A long walk but was worth seeing the sights.

“awesome!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

I love the caverns, they are a definite must see for people traveling to this area. They are so beautiful!!! You must take the tour that takes you through the Big Room, that is a sight to behold.

Also, take a windbreaker or light jacket as it gets cold in there, even in the summer months!
