There was no admission fee, but our trip was priceless. From the welcoming, friendly staff, to the local art exhibit, to the dinosaur exhibit..and everything in between, our family was impressed! Where else can you go in Farmington for free, and have so much fun?

Having been here twice in the past few weeks, once for the Shipwreck exhibit and more recently for the Dinosaurs of New Mexico exhibit, I have grown fond of this little museum. The building is very lovely, and doesn't make you feel "lost" like other...More

Semi-permanent exhibits of the local near history, Anasazi, Navajo, Hopi culture. New, modern facility....More

Nice sized museum in small town. Saw an Ansel Adams photo exhibit. Very well done. They have western artifacts and native american also. Small but nice gift shop.

We recently attended the newest exhibit at the Farmington Museum. The exhibit, Shipwreck, is a great exhibit for all ages. This exhibit explores the wrecks over the past century that have been brought to the surface as a result of new technology.

When we visited, there was a reproduction of a general store and no other exhibits. Good for maybe 15 minutes or so. This is a big building without a lot of contents.

Bensalem: I didn't notice any signs about bringing dogs into the museum. I presume that only service dogs are allowed, though often that is overlooked if your dog is small and is carried in a dog carrier/bag. There is an... More
