In my mind, I divide the museum into three parts. Upon entering, turn right and you will see historic items, including a very large Native American arrowhead collection and an impressive gun collection. To the left are 3 small art galleries. Finally, there is a very large and detailed diorama or early Carlsbad.
Below are some pictures I took of the museum and its exhibits.
|The museum is located on the western edge of the downtown district. It shares grounds with the library. This is the entrance.|
|We were fortunate to catch these redbuds in bloom on the eastern side of the museum building. Note the mural along the top of the building.|
|Nice arrowhead collection. In the case at back is a painting of Geronimo. In that same case are various items the old warrior once sold on the reservation in his older days.|
|An old mudwagon stagecoach.|
|Gallery containing paintings by the "Taos Ten".|
|Very detailed diorama of early day Carlsbad.|
