New Mexico Farm & Ranch Heritage Museum
4100 Dripping Springs Road Las Cruces, NM 88011

Fun and learning go hand in hand at the New Mexico Farm & Ranch Heritage Museum as visitors can watch a cow being milked, stroll along corrals filled with livestock, or watch one of our growing number of demonstrations. We retrieve memories for some visitors, educate others and provide a fun-filled day for everyone. The Museum, which is part of the New Mexico Department of Cultural Affairs, is accredited by the American Alliance of Museums. The enormous main building contains more than 24,000 square feet of exhibit space, along with catering space for meetings and events, a theater, and the Eagle Ranch Mercantile and Snack Bar. The Museum has seven different breeds of beef cattle, dairy cows, horses, sheep, goats and donkeys. The Skaggs Dairy Barn includes exhibits showing the importance of milk and New Mexico's dairy industry. Cart tours to the "South 20" portion of the museum campus are available throughout the day. A trained docent takes visitors on a tour of the livestock corrals, where they will learn more about the cattle raised in New Mexico. For large groups that make reservations, trolley rides to the corrals are available upon request. The museum has a greenhouse with daily plants sales, and many activities for children, including the indoor Adventure Corral and two play areas outside. The Museum is open Monday through Saturday, 9-5, and on Sunday from noon to 5.
