This museum was wonderful! It was like walking into your grandparent's attic. Tons of interesting history and artifacts. And for a kid of my generation, learning about the town's name origin was so great!

We thought the museum would just be about Geronimo but it had a ton more to see. The history of how Truth or Consequences came to be renamed, an archeological find of Mastadon bones, arrows, pottery, painting, local history, etc etc. Run by very nice and friendly people. Only a modest admission fee makes this place worth a stop.

Loved the collection of arrowheads arranged in patterns with shells and things. These were in the same room as an extensive collection of pottery. I enjoy the bric-a-brac style, you can tell different areas have been collected and added on at different times. The best sort of museum! Also has a decent/extensive setup on the whole "Truth or Consequences" name... More

Wonderful museum in the small town of Truth or Consequences. I loved it. The rocks in front are beautiful and the museum itself has so many interesting things.(pottery, arrowheads, Mammoth Skull, photos, cabin, and so much more.) You can also walk across the street to The Passion Pie Cafe for breakfast or lunch. Great place to eat.

...of all the junk they didn't know what to do with. The Ralph Edwards area was interesting, but beyond that, meh. Not worthy of the admission charge. Despite the name, there is VERY LITTLE Geronimo info/artifacts on site. They probably have enough historic artifacts to make something interesting, but they desperately need an adult to help filter out the crap.... More

This is a great museum of area history and folk lore. There is a lot of Indian pottery that has been found on display. This museum explains the towns name and history. If you really are not interested in the area, it is not for you. The people that work there are always friendly and informative.
