“A nice collection of local artifacts, but not for small kids”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

The museum has some very cool old artifacts covering the area's history from Native Americans through Old West and all the way into the Truth or Consequences game show tie in to the current name. I enjoyed seeing many of the items on display but found that our boys, aged 5- 7, lost interest quickly and we spent more time trying to keep them from damaging the items, which are largely sitting in the open and easily accessible to small hands, then we did enjoying what there was to see. If you're visiting in the summer, don't plan a visit as a safe haven from the heat: it's an old building with no air conditioning and it felt only a few degrees cooler than the 90+ degree outside temp.

“Museum Visit”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

I think they can do more, but lack of funding keeps it from being better. Nice walk to and from the hotel. I would like to see them stay open late in the summer when it is hot.

“A Great Little Secret”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

For a small town this museum is amazingly complete. Parking was on the street right in front. The admission, for a senior citizen, was $5.00 and worth every penny. Plan to spend at least an hour, but better two at this place.

“Quite a charming museum”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

Located in the middle of the oddly named town of Truth or Consequences, this is really a nice museum. Many motels in town can give you a coupon for free admission, which is even better. A nice little gift shop is attached. Next to the building is a fountain containing warm water from the hot springs, which originally (and more intelligently) provided the name for the town.
