a great stop with nice exhibits. I am sure many folks would simply pass on by and not git TorC the time of day as it is a bit off the road and does not meet some ideas of a tourist stop. Please stop and enjoy

Take the time to visit this "one of its kind" museum if you are in T or C. It's small, but so much history is in there that, even after three visits, I keep going back!

Lots of artifacts but it would be nice if the layout was in some chronilogical order. Its spread out over a number of rooms with no specific route to take. Generally interesting but it could be a lot better laid out. If you have an hour to kill it is worth a visit.

We had a great time exploring the museum and learning about the local history and surrounding area. Staff was very helpful and knowledgeable about the exhibits and directed us to things we'd missed originally walking through.

In our travels, my wife and I have always enjoyed stopping to see small museums in the towns we visit. Geronimo Springs. Is not that small and the exhibits are varied and very well done. Highly recommended.

This museum has a world class pottery collection, but it is at the very back of a disorganized, almost haphazard, collection. Persevere, as there are several gems mixed in with some rather lackluster items, and you will be rewarded with a stunning collection of arrowheads and pottery. Worth the time and the $5 admission.

This museum was wonderful! It was like walking into your grandparent's attic. Tons of interesting history and artifacts. And for a kid of my generation, learning about the town's name origin was so great!

We thought the museum would just be about Geronimo but it had a ton more to see. The history of how Truth or Consequences came to be renamed, an archeological find of Mastadon bones, arrows, pottery, painting, local history, etc etc. Run by very nice and friendly people. Only a modest admission fee makes this place worth a stop.
