“Very Nice Place To Visit”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

We have been to Ruidoso probably a hundred times and never stopped in here before. We have taken up Geocaching recently and were brought to this location in search of one. It is a small well organized visitors center. There are plenty of maps and regional information making it worth the stop.

“Kid friendly with interesting snapshots of local history”
Reviewed 18 March 2014

Very kid friendly although tiny. Beautiful mosaics on the building's exterior. A nice stress free stop to let kids interact with the displays. Clean well maintained bathroom and very helpful desk worker. They had little things like vintage photograph postcards (of outlaws and pioneer families) for sale and lots of brochures and maps of the area for free. We walked across the way and enjoyed the horse sculptures as well. Along with that, the visitor's center was a very enjoyable little walk.

“Perfect place to take a break”
Reviewed 8 February 2014

We just happened upon this place (a Geocache in the back) and it was a perfect FREE place to stop with the kids. There are interesting displays inside that tell of the area and of Billy the kid, Smokey Bear, etc.
Nice clean bathrooms, a couple 'face in the hole' photo ops, and an all around good place to get out of the car. The horse sculpture park next to it is also interesting and worth seeing. We are not from this area so it was all good information.

“Pretty cool little stop”
Reviewed 20 May 2013

Is this place huge? No. It's small. As a New Mexican, I already knew everything that's on display when it came to the pictures and information and everything but for someone who isn't familiar, it's a pretty cool stop. We stopped on our honey moon and the lady that was at the desk was extremely friendly. We ended up talking to her for about twenty minutes before we got on our way. This place isn't only about Billy the Kid but has parts of other New Mexican history. They also have a section where local art is displayed. Some is for sale. The cool part was that it wasn't only adult art, it was children's art. Nice stop.
