This museum is unlike any I've ever visited. I never anticipated seeing so much interesting artifacts and exhibits here. there is a little bit of everything, from early Deming settler history to an extensive Native American artifact collection and a great walk through the ages with exhibits showing the progression of history in the area. You could spend the whole... More

Everyone says this is a fantastic place to visit. Unfortunately for us, it is closed for renovation this July. We will definitely visit it our next time thru Deming.

This museum is unlike any I've ever visited. The objects create a visual history of life in the area, through the ages. Artwork too! And a gift shop with some unusual items. The building itself reflects the army's once-great presence in town. Spend a few hours learning about life in southwest New Mexico.

Let me start by saying we spent about 2 hours in this museum then traveled on. We couldn't stop talking about all the special things we saw and discovered there was a lot we missed. So on the way back through Deming we spent another 2 hours revisiting and talking to the proud staff. Most of the treasures were graciously... More

This is a gem of a small-town museum. The building itself is historical and the various collections inside are extensive. The displays are well thought out and do a great job telling the story of the town of Deming. The folks working there couldn't have been more friendly. If you are in the area and have an hour or two,... More

While there are signs in town and it is not a big town, it took us a while to locate this building - we seemed to keep missing the required turns. It was worth it though - wish we had more time. The collection of Mimbres pottery is unbelievable in diversity and quality - it was just incredible! In addition... More
