  • The museum is filled with 100s of pieces of history. It is well organized and documented. Besides the main building there are two out buildings as well. Who knew that so much history took place here! ...  more »
  • The Otero Museum is a hidden treasure. It has western, railroad, and local businesses. It had stories on different people that has lived here. I loved the stagecoach and the volunteer fire department ...  more »

  • Wonderful place to find out about local history from Mr. Otero and Kit Carson to more current happenings. Informative captions that help bring artifacts to life. I had visited a couple of years ago, and the museum didn't have air conditioning. It does now! There are several outside exhibits and of course I picked another hot day to visit, so I'll have an excuse to go back and view those as well when it's not so hot!
  • We had a wonderful tour. Our tour guide, Malle, was gracious, interesting and friendly. The museum is much larger than it looks, adding buildings and exhibits as they go. Nothing is roped off or forbidden...walk amongst history and experience it!!!!
