Had some of everything from prehistory, like mastodon skulls, to arrowheads, native pottery (enormous collection!), interesting displays on Geronimo, Cochise, and other main Apache leaders, a display on the Truth or Consequences game show, pioneer life, and the miners who settled the county.

Small museum with several rooms full of exhibits and historical information on the area, including the name change from Hot Springs to T or C. The log cabin is well preserved and interesting. It took us approximately 2 hours to tour thru the building. Enjoy!
