History of the area and NM from Native Americans, Spanish settlement, rail roads, construction of Elephant Butte dam and the TV show Truth or Consequences fills the museum. Mammoth and mastodon skulls on display. You can spend hours in the museum.

This little museum is a wonderful trip through the archaeology history and quirkiness of southern New Mexico. The volunteers were informative, patient, and a wealth of information. Do not miss this amazing little place!!
