The collection consists of items that have been donated. Quite a good collection of firearms and military history. Unfortunately, there is insufficient room to display the collection. There are displays in several different buildings on the NMMI campus.

This is a great historical museum. Located on the New Mexico Military Inst. campus. Combine this with a walk around campus and a visit to the famous Sally Port located at the Hagerman Barracks (the Box). This is a very old campus and has a really cool look to it. Worth an hour or so visit.

The General Douglas L. McBride Military Museum is a hidden gem in the New Mexico Military Institute. Lots of interesting photos and artifacts about NMMI and the many hero's who attended here.

As someone who has attended school and lived in the area this was one of my favorite locations to visit. Lots of history and interesting things to read about. Along with touring the grounds and watching a sporting event. The sense and feel of being on the campus does bring back some good memories. I highly recommend visit NMMI there a great bit of history to this places. Also the campus is used for alot photo opportunities for the locals.

Nothing like I expected. It was a very small Museum on the second floor of a military school. It wasn't every informative but it did have a lot to look at in a small space

Probably touting this as a full museum is a little pretentious but if you are a military buff, still worth going. Just know it is not expansive.

The McBride museum has tons of history about the New Mexico Military Institute. Exhibits presented accurately as it was. It's interesting to know that the museum used to house the first indoor swimming pool west of the Mississippi.

This is a military school and it is huge you have to check in with the commandant and he gives you a visitors badge. It is for you to see the museum. Basically the majority of the museum is about the building of the school and about some famous people that graduated from there and their good works.

It's a stretch to call it a museum, just one floor about some history of NMMI. Campus buildings are pretty though, restroom is clean, and everyone is really friendly. If you want to see a military institute and all the cadets walking around, or a bathroom break, go for it. Otherwise skip it.
