The Las Cruces Museum of Natural History is now located in the downtown mall after its move from Mesilla Valley Mall. The Museum is dedicated to broadening people’s understanding of natural history, science, and the environment of New Mexico and the Chihuahuan Desert. We offer exhibits and educational programs geared towards this mission. The Chihuahuan Desert Nature Center houses more than 40 live animals from our area. Admission to the Museum of Natural History is FREE.
