The New Mexico Farm and Ranch Heritage Museum is 47 acres packed with real stories about real people. The interactive museum, which has welcomed visitors from all over the world, brings to life the 3,000-year history of farming and ranching in New Mexico. The enormous main building contains more than 24,000 square feet of exhibit space, along with a restaurant, gift shop, and theater.

Fun and learning go hand in hand as visitors can watch a cow being milked, stroll along corrals filled with livestock, enjoy several gardens, or watch one of a growing number of demonstrations. New Mexico’s Farm and Ranch Heritage Museum is extraordinarily family-friendly, evoking memories for some visitors, educating others, and providing a fun-filled day for everyone.
