Small museum but very well done

Our visit was about an hour. A variety of artifacts tell the local history. A children's interactive gallery teaches about the human body. Friendly and helpful staff. Park-like area outside features local plants and must be beautiful in spring.

The Western Heritage Museum in Hobbs NM does a wonderful job by bringing in great displays of history. For a small town museum, they have shared many events such as the Titanic, animals of the desert, and many more. Sunday'a are fre movie days where they show old movies complete with pop corn!

I have visited this museum several times and every time I have been greeted and helped by very friendly staff. They make sure that you are taken care of throughout the entire experience of whatever exhibit is there.

Loved the variety of exhibits. Enjoyed reading about the men and women

Visited on June 30, 2018. There is a movie theater, an actual wide all of photos and short bios of men and women inducted into the cowboy hall of fame and the year. There were activities for the children. I learned a lot about the life of Sandra Day O'Conner who grew up on a ranch in the South West. It is small enough to hold the attention of adults and kids. Outside were some very cool sculptures.

A surprising treat
Aug 2017 • Friends
Permanent displays celebrate the coboying and ranching heritage and origins of the area, with a nod to the oil patch's contribution to development. Surprisingly, this little museum regularly attracts exhibits of national and global significance as well. E.g.; who would imagine an eye-opening collection of artifacts salvaged from the Titanic landing in the midst of a museum crowded with an old-west chuckwagon and all these saddles and big silver rodeo belt buckles? Open Sundays, too, this is one of Hobbs' true cultural gems.

Very interesting and educational for children
Mar 2018 • Family
It is Affordable, First of all I'd like to add that it's not a big museum but it is very educational learned about the History of Cowboys and ranchers across the country , how some were born near where we live. Ld Chuck wagons they are still remodeling. Verynice. Did go into what theycall "In The Dark" thats where education comes in, Kids get to learn aboutMammals and Fish that live in the deep Ocean and how some live near the surface and hoe some glow in the dark. About Bats.We enjoyed the Visit good for Children and adults.
