This museum is a wealth of information about local county history. Walked around with my 8 year old daughter and we loved it. Soooo much to see! So many artifacts, even from 1500BC. The log cabin was fascinating, too. There is even a garden and arbor to rest in on the east side of the museum. We easily could have... More

We had a wonderful time at the museum. It has collections of natural history, native American pottery and Apache artifacts from the 1800s, asking with the local history of Hot Springs and Truth or Consequences local history. Braces from the original Carrie Tingley children's hospital, stories from Elephant Butte dam and lake. While we were there they also were having... More

A wonderful, and inexpensive, way to learn the history of the area. Self-paced touring allows you to spend as much time as you'd like. There's a great deal of information about the Hot Springs / Bath Houses, Ralph Edwards & the T or C Fiesta, Elephant Butte Dam construction plus many notable local families. Museum has an extensive display of... More

A fun way to learn about the history of the area. Small donation requested, I think it was $3 or $5. Lots of things to look at and very nice folks working there. I loved watching the video of how Truth or Consequences got its name! Really cool displays of arrowheads, pottery around history. Afterwards go across the street and... More

Stopped into the Geronimo Springs museum on a whim after walking around T or C and was very pleased with that choice. We were greeted by a very friendly woman who told us how to maneuver the museum. We learned a lot, spoke with some volunteers combing through old news papers, and would recommend this experience to other visitors in... More

It's neat little place. They have Mimbre pottery from a 1000 years ago. That's impressive. I loved the saddles they had on display. The tooled leather on the saddles were so pretty. You can learn about Geronimo and the Apache kid. Makes you understand the Indian struggles a little bit better. They also have the newspaper from when it was... More

Love this museum, holds many treasures. Drink a cold Sarsaparilla while you're there! The Fiesta held every year in Truth or Consequences has a rich history, love looking at the photos and dresses. Log Cabin reproduction is interesting.

This excellent museum seemed conspicuously out of place in a small town .. it is a treasure trove of prehistory and history too. We have never seen such a wide ranging collection of arrow n spear tips , as well as geologic samples , a mastodon and mammoth skull and even history of the future in a display of newly... More
