Pleasantly surprised. Very nice exhibits (inside) on bees and honey, textiles, the Elephant Butte dam and Rio Grande. Preserves and presents many oral history, photographs, art work, wagons, tools, farm equipment, and many other artifacts of SW life. Guided tour of outside corrals and animals kept there. Wonderful introduction/ overview of local and regional history. Excellent textile exhibit.

My friends and I enjoyed the tour they gave us in the ranch while explaining the kinds of animals they have. If I am around Las Cruces I will go again and it also fun to take your kids they can be very excited to see everything.

We were visiting our oldest son (an ag major) at college and decided to check out the nearby museum. The docents were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The displays were all very interesting and we learned quite a bit. The museum is also very attractive with nice grounds.

Great museum it starts out with explaining all about bees everything you always wondered and now you will know. I took a guided tour around the outside took a lot of pictures. Very inexpensive to come here and spend a lot of hours. Every room with something different lot of information they must see.

The NM Farm & Ranch Heritage Museum is absolutely fantastic with its multiple and varied exhibits in addition to the small shuttle that takes you around to the barn and other outbuildings to see the various livestock. We especially enjoyed the Honey Bee exhibit (new) and the Elephant Butte Reservoir exhibit (also new).The admission price is amazingly low ($5 regular... More

Our kids are 14, 9 and 4 and we all had a great time! We all learned so much from the different areas. So much to watch the kids actually interact and learn something about our history as well as the history of NM.

There are always new and revolving exhibits about agriculture, quilting,and early days of NM. If you don't have much time to spend there, just don't miss the wonderful exhibit of cowboy drawings by Robert Shufelt, (Shufly). They are black and white drawings and are so intricate you think they are photographs. The Cowboy days held one weekend in the spring... More

I walked through the galleries every chance I got during breaks in a recent business conference. It was a chance to learn about the West real people lived and worked in. The livestock in the outdoor section should be a special hit with kids.
