New Mexico Museum of Natural History
From Las Cruces to Santa Fe, Take This Dreamy New Mexico Road Trip
Upon arriving at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History, you'll be greeted by a giant metal dinosaur—which, if you ask us, is reason enough to stop at this iconic museum. Through the museum you will experience the history of New Mexico, from the beginnings of life on Earth, to dinosaurs, to today, as well as the award-winning Hall of Stars which was built largely by volunteers to recreate and explain the science of the night sky to eager museumgoers. The museum is also host to a variety of events and temporary exhibits, all of which are currently virtual, showcasing everything from volcanos to animal forms made from upcycled items.
