PistachioLand Farm Tour

27 reviews
The PistachioLand tour offers a ride on a 14 passenger electric vehicle through the pistachio orchards and vineyards. This is a working farm where pistachios and wine grapes are produced, and wine and candy is also produced on-site. Free samples of nuts and wine are available in the gift shop. Although you can walk-in to purchase a $2 ticket, booking guarantees a seat unless canceled for weather.
$5.13 per adult

I am both a Scientist and a Christian and I loved this museum! I’m so glad I heard about it. The shroud is an exact, life size replica of the real Shtoud of Turin, now being held in storage at the Vatican. The scientific research is amazing and I was very very moved by what I learned and saw. I highly recommend everyone go to this museum.

A highlight of our trip to New Mexico. For someone who already knew lots about the Shroud, the opportunity to speak with Pete Schumacher, who has spent so many years studying it, was a delight. For some with us who knew nothing about it, the visit was a real eye-opener and thought-provoker. Whether a believer or not, no thinking person can deny what a compelling story the Shroud of Turin is, especially when it remains unexplained after so much serious and high level scientific effort to do so.

Pros: - Very knowledgeable docents. - Cool science meets technology, and either real-life sci-fi or faith-affirming (depending on your beliefs). - Interactive media, history lesson, and up-close exhibits. - Non-judgy on any guests'beliefs. Cons - The facility is less than ideal (attention, wealthy philanthropists!) - Location is centralized, parking not ideal. - Needs better marketing (again, any pro-bono work would probably be appreciated by the (volunteer) staff). Overall, highly recommend you dedicate at least an hour, two if you have a lot of questions, and bring an open mind!

This is a one-room "museum" that displays a real-size photo replica of the Shroud of Turin. It is pretty incredible to see up close, but is just a reproduction. The ten-minute video explains some of the research that worked to substantiate the origins of the shroud and ties in some local researchers involved with the effort. The rest of the exhibits are basically reminders of what was in the film. This are some interesting perspectives and may be emotional for believers, but there is little original about this museum. I've seen much more thorough information in PBS and History Channel shows.

Don. Andy, the director of this nonprofit museum met with us even though the place was closed. He is very knowledgeable about the shroud and spent time with us so we understood what we were seeing. If you aren’t a believer that is is the shroud that covered the body of Jesus, you will be after visiting.
