We've visited multiple times: the kids like it. Sometimes the outside exhibits aren't manned with no explanation. The inside exhibits are very well done and the volunteers do a great job explaining to visitors and answering questions.More

Interesting place to see! Reasonable fee! If you are into old farm equipment, this is the best collection I have seen! Being a farm boy, I thought it was cool to see! Staff was excellent!

We visited Las Cruces for the first time in May 2017. There is an unusual museum there that's different from anything we have seen - the Farm and Ranch Heritage Museum. Inside there are exhibits; outside there are farm animals and displays of farm equipment....More

We visited here while we were in Las Cruces. Absolutely fantastic exhibits. My wife loved the Spanish Weaving Exhibit. I enjoyed the exhibit on the Elephant Butte Dam and Reservoir. We walked around the outside also, and enjoyed the bridge!
