We have been wanting to go here for some time. The staff was very friendly and very helpful. We enjoyed the exhibits and thought is was great for a town the size of Clifton to have this little jewel.

This is a beautiful museum with volunteers and workers who quite evidently enjoy their job. It just underwent some renovations and it's quite interesting. Many, many items to look at. You will not be disappointed.

Bosque is pronounced "boss-kee" or "Bah-skee" and is a Spanish word meaning woods or wooded. The Bosque River was named by early Spanish explorers and the county was probably named after the river.
