Entrance fee was reasonable ($5 adults Under 6 free $3 6-12) and there were some well priced small souvenirs for my young... More

Many look upon Cloudcroft as a ski destination, or a spot to escape summer's heat for a few days. The museum provides the background for how and why Cloudcroft exists at all. It gives an in-depth view of life at the time of of the area's development and exploitation. Good way to spend a few hours, and become more familiar... More

We went for the "Art and Wine in the Pines". We had a good time. One had to go through the museum to get to the festival. It has a few items on display inside and several posters describing Apache life. There are some old buildings and old equipment but have an appearance of being unkempt. It is a small... More

Heard about the museum and decided to go by for a visit, there were two of us in the group and we arrived 9 minutes till 5. When we arrived at the front door they were closed. The sign said closed at 5 I guess they decided to leave early. From the outside peering thru the gate it looked pretty... More

Nice little museum that chronicles the history of the Sacramento Mountains. The Halloween setup is very fun for the whole family but a bit pricey for what you get.

It is open for this event the two weekend evenings before Halloween. A must see! The museum and grounds bring the history of the mountain communities alive. A real look into the past with outstanding exhibits that... More

Enjoyed our time perusing through the authentically presented regional buildings. Barber shop, blacksmith shop, rail car, beautiful Chapel in the Woods, homes & soon to be available schoolhouse. Great pictures & history in main building

We have been coming to Cloudcroft for many years & have never visited this museum. I am so glad we stopped to see this wonderful place. There are many buildings that you can go into plus read the self guided tour materials all for the low price of $5. My favorite was the church & they are adding new school... More
