Between Clovis and Portales sits this small museum about the history of the area including Clovis man and mammoths. It's simple enough and cheap enough to take the children and not blow your budget.
March 8, 2016 Website was confusing, but we we entered this museum into our GPS and a couple of locations came up. Since it is associated with the campus of Eastern New Mexico University we went to the one that appeared to be on campus. As we drove down the main road of the campus we got all excited when... 更多
Lots of artifacts and history for the "Clovis" people. Many human remains along with remains of a mammoth. The Blackwater Draw Site is included with the ticket to the museum and you must see both. The site offers a few walking trails and has an exhibit at the bottom where bones are currently being excavated. Note: The Blackwater Draw Site... 更多
Interesting displays on the Blackwater dig. Mammoth bones that you can actually touch. A few large displays and many small exhibits. Twenty six video on Gault dig site in central Texas.
This museum is THE museum to see the remains, and learn the history, of the Clovis people. This museum gives a great overview of the area and tells you what you can experience at the Blackwater Draw site.
Stop here and do some reading, then go on to the Dig site. Look up the address before you go, or you'll miss this little building set off the road. Friendly staff, some books and postcards for purchase. A part of America's History here!
Very unexpected museum in the desert. Quite a few artifacts from the area. Yes they have a mammoth many Indian artifacts as well as a complete geological sampling from around the region. Spend an extra hour and see the actual excavation site about 10miles away. Its worth the drive. They also have preserved the oldest known well in North America... 更多
Went to Clovis on a whim from Carlsbad. Passed the Museum and flipped around to come back. SO worth the stop! Your admission to the museum (a mere $3) also gets you into the Clovis dig site not far down the road. A slice of Pre-history well worth the stop. Take those extra 15-30 minutes!
I called from Lubbock, TX to make sure the museum would be open by the time my Husband and I would arrive. The young woman who answered the phone knew the drive time and very pleasantly told us we'd have plenty of time to enjoy the museum. We met her upon arrival and she was even more helpful and knowledgeable,... 更多
