Visited this museum not sure what to expect. One of the best museums I've ever visited. It has something for everyone. It runs on donations. There is a gift shop, too. Donate and/or buy something. This gem needs to be kept open.

We have been in museums around the world and collections here of ancient Native American pottery, minerals, dolls, and Southwest cowboy antiques was vast and world class! Plan at least a two hour visit! Free admission. Donations highly deserved!

9-4, Monday - Saturday. It's free but if you can give them a donation - I'm sure the volunteers will appreciate it.
