A Free Museum- Nature and Science

Las Cruces, NM, United States
9 Kudos
While resting in Las Cruces while on our road trip in New Mexico to visit the White Sand National Monument, we found this free museum. It was a very small museum but doable for an hour or two of free museum. Not a lot going on in this museum but a great little place to stop by if you are in the area and want something free to explore. There was a little section with wildlife like turtle and toad. And then there was the kids favorite room, the room with the large planet Earth that changes color as you interacted with it.
