  • Incredible museum for such a small community. It's easy to spend multiple hours learning about the past. I especially enjoyed the information about the internment/POW camp. A can't miss if you have a few extra hours to spend while passing through.
  • Coolest place in lordsburg to visit. Cool artifacts in different rooms. Avon memorabilia room, P.O.W room, Phelps mine, and much more. It is worth the stop and not too far off the highway. Old armory that has been repurposed for enjoyment of many. The man who runs the museum is friendly and welcoming, we will be back.
