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.
