Worthwhile museum to visit. Previous reviewers have written excellent reports and photos so will not repeat. There is a nice quadrangle garden that you can access with a few outside exhibits. Easy free parking. Go and experience the Zuhl.

If your into rocks fossils, petrified wood, and minerals this is the place to go. Is not a big museum which actually enjoy cause it seems more promising looking at the rocks and my 3 year old son enjoyed it too. Just remember there only open from 12pm to 4pm Tue through Friday. And to make things better is free. Definitely worth checking out.

Absolutely stunning display of petrified forest. Probably the best in the world. We could not believe what we saw!

Free museum in Las Cruces that is a true wonder. One of the best petrified wood collections in the US. Excellent fossils also. Well worth the time for all ages.

We live in El Paso, but a short drive allows us to explore around this interesting small town. While looking for directions for a dinner somewhere around the New Mexico State University area, I noticed the tag for The Zuhl Museum, which is located on the edge of the campus. Reviewing their website I was pleased to see the Museum features Petrified wood displays. We originally came from Oregon where Petrified wood can be found in a lot of forests. We made a stop there on our way to dinner, and are glad we did. The museum is not very large, but is well stocked with an amazing variety of Petrified wood, dinosaur artifacts, and small treasures abound in the Museum. The Staff was cordial and friendly. We spent 45 minutes there and saw most of the offerings, but will return again to see some of the displays we missed.
