This month’s featured attraction: The Geronimo Springs Museum

The museum, located at 211 Main Street in Truth or Consequences, is as close as one can get to a comprehensive history of Sierra County. From mammoth and mastodon skulls and the world-class collection of prehistoric pottery to the Apache, Hispanic, mining, ranching, and cultural exhibits, the museum is a fascinating complex of historical artifacts.

The museum will host its annual Open House during Fiesta (May 3, 4, 5). Frontier Legends (period entertainment featuring characters from 1865-1910) will perform at the museum right after the parade. Admission is free all weekend. Check out the Ralph Edwards Room to learn more about how Fiesta began!
