For a small town it's a great little museum with many years of Deming history and awesome stories. To top it off it's free,of course you could donate money if you like.

There is a lot of stuff here donated by members of the community. You may have interest in some of the collections but certainly the focus of any visit should be the wonderful collection of Mimbres pottery produced from about 1000 to 1150. Your visit will be much improved if you take some time to study a bit about the... More

This museum had many areas. When we walked in we were warmly greeted and told some history of the museum. We had no idea that there was that much history in Deming. Many residents had donated items relating to Indians,WW1 and 2, Bataan Death March, patch cord phone operator to macintosh PC, doll room, fans buttons and hooks, oriental display... More

If your in Deming and you have any time at all you really should pay the Deming Luna Mimbres Museum a visit. It is large and comprehensive. Covers all aspects of the area's history. Pots to geodes and EVERY thing in between. And the price is right; a donation of your choosing. You really plan on spending 2-3 hours here.... More

My wife had done a research paper in college on the Mimbres culture & their ceramics so we had to visit this museum. Not only the Mimbres exhibit exceeded our expectations, but so did the entire museum. We expected to be here at tops an hour but after more than 2-1/2 hours we had wandered through most of the exhibits... More

The museum in Deming is the kind of place that has made museum buffs out of my husband and me. It is so full of wonderful treasures, from lots of artifacts from the Mimbres Indians to life in early Deming to the life of the cowboy, an outstanding exhibit of minerals, tools from Frontier days, and so much more.
