A little bit of a lot of history. Displayed in a neat and interesting way. Staff is friendly and helpful. Many interesting and informative settings. A real diamond in the Southwest. Well worth the visit and the price is right...a donation!

This small town museum is packed with beautiful displays. Their pottery section rivals the Smithsonian. They are community oriented and FREE! The volunteers are helpful and pleasant. It is not just the building in the picture, but another building connected to it. It will take several hours to see. We loved the minerals section too.

The entire museum is full of historic treasures and art work. The pottery collection is breathtaking and in the Doll room they have a marvelous assortment of dolls from all eras. the highlight is a doll that was recovered from the rubble of Hiroshima. If you are in Deming do not skip the museum

I'm not really a museum person, but my wife is and convinced me should go through and I'm glad we did. There is something to interest everyone. My wife was drawn to the extensive pottery displayed. What got my attention was the memorial to the men caught in the Philippines by Japan in WWII. Take the time and you won't... More

The museum here has a wonderful collection on exhibition. So many things and laid out in a way to be able to see and understand. Not cluttered. The mimbres pottery is amazing. The small town exhibit in the back is cute and interesting. Make sure you see the second building across the street and the small memorial park that the... More

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.
