I stopped here on my first day of living in T or C and it was a great way to get to know some of the history of the area. Plus, the day I went they were letting people in for free, so keep your eye out for special days and deals!

Stopped in during roadtrip. Interesting museum with lots of informative stories about each piece. Man who worked there was very nice and told my kids some fun stories about artifacts. Make sure you take the time to read about each item as there are tons of interesting stories.

Great T or C history, and they add new stuff regularly. Many old documents, etc about families that still live in the area.

This was a small but very busy museum A lot of rooms with various findings from prehistoric to yesterday and the strange history of changing the town's name as a publicity stunt for a programme that I have never heard of. OK if you get to this strange place

A terrific little museum for young and old alike. Curators and administration have put together wonderful exhibits of local historical events and people. What made a lasting impression on me was how well they did on what was surely a small budget. The exhibits are easily accessible and, I think, comprehensive. Loved it---and I'm not a history buff.

As we travel extensively in our motorhome, we love to visit small-town museums to get a feel for the local history. This one has a large collection of a large variety of things, but no continuity or cohesiveness to it. A good revamping of the exhibits iinto some king of timeline would help.

This is a great little museum, it has a lot of documentation regarding the local history of our area as well as a fantastic gift shop. They have a large collection of native american pottery as well. This museum is a pillar of the community in a way, I definitely recommend stopping by and supporting this neat establishment.

The Geronimo Museum is a great place to learn about the southwest and the Ralph Edwards rooms will tell you how Truth or Consequences got it's name. 2 hours max will let you see all.

We spent an hour there, but could have spent two. Do not miss the authentic log cabin in the back. The Mimbres and Mogollon pottery and the points collections are definitely worth a trip in themselves.

Very interesting museum. It has a huge collection of antique pottery and arrow heads and had an interesting collection which addresses the interesting history of the area. I enjoyed the attached log cabin that was dismantled and moved to the site. Well worth the admission.
