The Las Cruces Museum of Natural History is dedicated to interpreting the Chihuahuan Desert and making science accessible to everyone. Our exhibits include a selection of reptiles, amphibians and fish of the Chihuahuan Desert, an exhibition about the Paleozoic Trackways found just outside of Las Cruces and the Magic Planet: allowing everyone to explore our Solar System. The museum also has an active schedule of activities and classes offered to the public that support our mission.
