A great natural history museum possibly the best in New Mexico! The staff is friendly and the best part is it's free! They let you touch the animals skins in the middle of the tour-way awesome! Kid friendly but has stairs.

Just did the electrical and mechanical tour which went through three buildings for two hours and you would be amazed at the strange stuff. Electrical switchgear, insulators, generators, fuses, meters, control panels you name it there is a section covering it. Also 1900's medical, aircraft, cars, printing, television, broadcast, tanks, tractors, oil drilling equipment, stereo and tape, and a vast... More

This is an amazing place. The first tour takes you into the world of animals. Most were from hunting trips others are replicas. Each animal is tagged with it's name and location. The museum has an entire room of birds with a space for a replica of each kind of bird that has come onto the ranch. Next we come... More

The greatest collection of it's kind I have seen. Not set up like a regular museum which is great. The tour guide (free) fills in and let's you wander. Do not miss!!!!

I went into this museum not really expecting much, but WOW! I was astounded at the quantity of wildlife samples were there and the quality of the taxidermy. It was incredible! I liked the crocodile....and especially the number of necklaces found in his stomach after it was killed! This place is highly recommended!!

I have visited here many times in the past. Every time there is something new. So much to see here. You must take both tours. Both are so interesting. Makes for a great Saturday outing, but be aware, you will be doing a lot of walking.

Out of this world collection of wildlife museum, collected when still allowed. And the electro mechanical collections, even if electromechanical is not your thing see it anyway. You will not regret the time spent. Plan about 4 hours total. Do not cut short. This is the collection of a very wealthy man, nor des eased, now owned by his getting... More

Very interesting natural history museum of animals hunted and collected from around the world. Just be sure to call ahead as it is only via a scheduled guided tour. The tour took a good hour. (We did not have time or an appointment to do the electro-mechanical collection tour - an additional 2+ hours.) Also the turn off to the... More
