  • It was raining the day we arrived so learning about flooding and the big floods that created The Big Ditch were certainly timely. Arte Chicano by 2 local artists was my favorite.

  • Fantastic exhibits, very nice outdoor space for events, and interesting events. And from what I've heard, it's a decently managed not-for-profit organization worthy of the community's support.

  • Absolutely loved this museum! Small but so much rich history within. Children loved the activity that was set up for them and we all learned a lot about Silver City. The staff was friendly and informative. Really enjoyed our time here. No fee to enter but there is a donation box available, please don't forget to donate!
  • Stopped in to pick up a shirt for my niece while we were in from Louisiana for a few days. We go in every yr. There are not many to chose from but what they had was perfect. My niece loved the shirt and the unique red color. Her preteen daughter is already wanting it.
  • Great little museum. Lovely ladies!
  • The old historic building that the museum was really cool. 90% of the museum is dedicated to Flamenco dancing. It was interesting but a strange. I would have though that the museum would be centered around the town and it’s history and heritage. No the less our 7 and 5 year old kids enjoyed it. They have a little scavenger hunt where they can do and get some free colored rocks. There are some Flamenco costumes that you can try on and get some funny pictures. The museum is technically free but they ask for a donation of about $5/person.
  • The ladies here are sweethearts!! They will chat with you about the town & are happy to make suggestions about where else to visit. The gift shop is well stocked with lots of local treasures. The museum itself is small but still really interesting & the house itself is charming. No bells n whistles just an authentic look into this towns past. Beautiful exterior mosaic mural was still under construction but WOW!! The ladies said the local magnet school kids were helping with it! What a wonderful lil museum ♥️
