A Must See Museum! Wow! Just Wow! Best hour I have spent in years. I am excited to have family/friends visit Las Cruces so I can take them to this gem of a museum.
This place is for anyone of any age. Both my mom and my 2.5 year old toddler were loving it! Really cool dinosaur and petrified wood stuff! It was quite small but perfect size for a toddler, in and out in 30-45 minutes.
