This is a nice museum in a historic house. Their current exhibit was about flamenco dancing. It was interesting but I would have appreciated more local history.

This is worth a visit. It’s walking distance from most of the eateries downtown, and staffed by friendly people. The rotating exhibit currently is Flamenco. It has colorful displays and is pretty interesting. There are exhibits upstairs about the town and regions history. Unfortunately one...More

Bea is a very knowledgeable and interesting gal to get to know. I would have given this place 5 stars if there had been an elevator since I'm handicapped.

As the museum was on the list of goid stops we decided to give it a try. Was a interesting old house. Exibits were nothing spectacular. Was hoping for more local historic information.

The museum has a special exhibit about flamenco. The costumes were wonderful. There's a nice gift shop.

What a great location to learn about Silver City and it's environs. Loved the house and all the exhibits. Very reasonable priced and be sure to check out the gift shop afterwards.

We were hoping to find out about the history of Silver City, but eighty percent was about Spain's flamingo dancers. There was very little about the town itself.

My husband and I went to Silver City for a quick getaway. We were just bumming around and came upon this little museum. They take donations, $3 suggested but the value is worth more. Lots of interesting exhibits and the story of the people who...More
