It's neat little place. They have Mimbre pottery from a 1000 years ago. That's impressive. I loved the saddles they had on display. The tooled leather on the saddles were so pretty. You can learn about Geronimo and the Apache kid. Makes you understand the Indian struggles a little bit better. They also have the newspaper from when it was... More

Love this museum, holds many treasures. Drink a cold Sarsaparilla while you're there! The Fiesta held every year in Truth or Consequences has a rich history, love looking at the photos and dresses. Log Cabin reproduction is interesting.

This excellent museum seemed conspicuously out of place in a small town .. it is a treasure trove of prehistory and history too. We have never seen such a wide ranging collection of arrow n spear tips , as well as geologic samples , a mastodon and mammoth skull and even history of the future in a display of newly... More

We went here as our trip to spaceport America was a no show of tour by spaceport, with tickets in hand and no refund or cancellation. If you are into arrowheads, it's has lots and lots very well displayed. Great pottery collection. An old cabin set out as a prospector home. Lots of interesting items, a great gift shop. Very...

They had a good representation of the old west featuring artifacts from the timeframe. The exhibit of projectile points was quite marvelous.

This is a nice museum with a lot of artifacts to show the history of this area. Limited captions on things. So you could spend a leisure hour or two just enjoying if you like museums or you are a history buff.

It's very cute and had a ton of things to see. It's a little older and not fancy, but it was all very interesting.

Great museum for those of us who like to look at displays but get tired of reading detailed descriptions. There was lots to see and enjoy but not too many written explanations. I especially liked all the Mimbres pottery and the log cabin display.

When you first enter the museum, it's easy to under-estimate the time it will take to see everything. The Native American displays alone are good for an hour.

At this museum you will learn about how the little town of Hot Springs became Truth or Consequences. There are wonderful photos and throw back materials to read. The museum also has an amazing collection of Native American pottery, memorabilia and history of the local Indian culture. You can find interesting things for purchase in their gift store. There are... More
