“Hard to Grasp”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

What an amazing little museum! There is so much stuff that it is beyond grasping. There is an incredibly large amount of information on Billy the Kid in the basement. In contrast, there are souvenirs of movie stars in one section upstairs. The best part was that it was neat, clean and tidy. The stairs alone are worth the trip itself.

“Not Worth Stopping For”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

The person running the museum obviously didn't want to be bothered by guests. The admission fee seemed high for what was in the museum. The outside of the building looks great, but the inside doesn't reflect much care. The exhibits were poorly displayed, and the whole place was very poorly lit. It was a hodge-podge of just stuff. There were many beauty queen crowns, and I don't know exactly what those had to do with the history of Lincoln County or Ruidoso It wasn't really worth stopping for, and I won't return.
