Apparently, by looking at the guest book, many people don't get to the spot. It was a treasure with stable exhibits and some shorter term ones. We love the vintage dresses.
Besides stunning traveling displays and the permanent Trading Post display, there are hands on activities, a splendid gift shop, terrific restrooms for weary travelers, and wonderful staff to answer any question about the area, the museum or activities planned. IT's an open and airy place but step outside and investigate the river walk and enjoy the geese, ducks and sound... 更多

We had a great time for $5.00. Saw an art show which was the reason for our visit, then moved on to the raptor exhibit. Even the grounds were wonderful. This is the best $5 I have spent in a long time. There is also a lot of literature available at the museum about other things to do in the... 更多
For a small town museum, this one is worth a visit. On permanent display is a collection of local historical artifacts. The museum also hosts art shows; a recent exhibit featured original prints by Ansel Adams. There is a small bookstore with local guidebooks and other volumes, many by local authors as well as gift items representing Northwest New Mexico..... 更多
Having grown up in a trading post on the Navajo Reservation in the 60s and 70s I love the trading post exhibit; you can't see too many of those left anymore. We've also loved the temporary exhibits over the years, from Egypt and other places around the world. I think this is one of the best small town museums.
Love the Farmington Museum! Seems like there is always a new exhibit. The Ansel Adams show was amazing. This is not your typical small town museum. Having visited what passes for museums in other locations I'm always so impressed with the latest shows
Friends and I visited to see the Ansel Adams exhibit, which was excellent. The exhibit was nicely displayed, the museum was not crowded, and it was only $5 admission. We were all impressed with the exhibit and the friendly staff . I have now recommended it to several of my friends here in Durango.
