  • I wished I could be here every day! I took the grandkids for the afternoon, we had a fun time building a satellite and testing it. We enjoyed the room with the large planet that changed colors as we interacted with it. Museums have changed since I was a kid. Hands on fun is always a great way to learn and appreciate culture.
  • This is an awesome museum that the City of Las Cruces provides. Granted it isn't on the scale of a children's museum or a dedicated science museum, but it does touch on a lot of subjects in a very small space. They have astronomy, topology, fossils, love animals found in the area, dead animals found in the area, and at times host certain events mostly for children. They are attached to the Art museum complex as well and are across a courtyard from the Branigan Cultural Center. All of these museums are free but also accept a "pay what you think we are worth" donation system. It's well worth at least five dollars. Don't go expecting the world, and you'll have a great time.
