If it touched Deming it is in this museum. An impressive Minbres Pottery collection. Housed in the old armory, they have a room if war memorabilia, antiques galore, dolls, and geodes. Great way to spend a few hours in Deming!

Great museum, far bigger inside than it looks, you'll need several hours! Native history and artefacts (pottery) galore, some military history, transportation, and large gem/minerals collection.

This is a hidden gem; a truly great museum for a small community. There is something here for everyone: military, western, automobiles, toys, clothing, art, handcrafts, it is all here in a surprisingly large building.

9-4, Monday - Saturday. It's free but if you can give them a donation - I'm sure the volunteers will appreciate it.
