My husband and I are not outdoorsy people, as a matter of fact, while I appreciate interior design I'm not the "let's head down to the art gallery" type. However, this was absolutely impressive! We both enjoyed it very much and would recommend it to both locals and visitors.

Working at one of the county's premier living history museums I am always a little critical of other museums. This one is wonderful. The staff we encountered were so friendly and willing to take time to talk to us. We arrived just minutes before a behind the scenes livestock tour. The tour guide, Virginia, was a WEALTH of knowledge and... More

A fantastic place to see first hand how farmers and ranchers work in the Southwest and more specifically, New Mexico. Staff on hand to give first-hand, hands on experience with farm and ranch animals. Also, a great array of farm equipment.

We have driven by this facility a number of times without stopping. I am glad we did finally because it is much more expansive than it appears from the road. There is a very nice museum along with agricultural displays, event center, live ranch animals of many breeds and large, landscaped walking areas between the barns and sheds. This is... More

Perhaps this wasn't the best time of year to have visited. Not much going on. Many animal displays empty. They could do a lot more if they simply labeled some of the plants and trees. Seems like a museum in need of money and a curator.

This is one of the best museums in New Mexico. Great for seeing what life was like in early New Mexico and great for a child to see the exhibits. The Blacksmith exhibit is very educational.

Demonstration on how to make your own ice cream in a coffee can that you kick back and forth for 10 minutes, which was very cool for our grand kids and us. We all did it together so made for a neat family activity plus we all got to eat it when it was done. Also enjoyed discounted Caliche ice... More

There is something here for everyone. I didn't expect much, but I was pleasantly surprised. There are displays inside the main building, covering nearly every aspect of life back then. From art and artifacts, to tools, carriages and buggies, household and farming goods, and even live exhibits. They have rotating exhibits that change regularly. So no matter how many times... More
