  • It was a capsule in time that highlighted the rich history of the land of enchantment. I enjoyed seeing the influence the Spanish & indigenous people of the region had. A cultural enrichment!
  • Very thoughtful chronological presentation of many facets of local history. More informative than entertaining - adults enjoyed it, kids were mostly bored. The text on the walls was more interesting to me than most of the artifacts.
