Where are we today ?

        Another wonderful warm sunny day here in the desert. Got a couple of nice early morning walkabouts. so peaceful and warm this sure is the life.
sunrise over the Florida mountains
    Then just after 8:30 am we headed into Deming to check out the Deming Luna Mimbres Museum for their website click HERE  . And what an mazing museum this is! We are not museum people but this place just blew us away . It was built in the early 1900's and was used for many purposes over the years. Was an armoury etc.. and in the late 1970s  it was taken over as a museum, they have been working on it since then, all done by volunteers. Admission is free and they ask for donations. After our tour we sure had to make a donation.

map of their place, it is HUGE !
    When we walked in 3 volunteers greated us and ask if we had been here before. Nope, Well the reply was you are in for an amazing experience, and they were right the money, This place just blows you away. 
we tired in the doll room over 1,000 dolls on display
Christmas displays too

     Then we walked and we walked from room to room really hard to see everything there is just so much to see, actually took us just over 2 hours and we could have spent more time.

  8. That building didn't look big enough to house all of that. Looks like quite an interesting display with so many various areas and topics. I don't do liver but the rest looks amazing.

  10. I spent a whole day, Including going out to lunch and returning. When it was getting close to closing time I finished my touring. THEN the lady at the desk asked how I liked the upstairs displays. WHAT UPSTAIRS? I had to go back again just for the upstairs. From your pictures many things have been added in the last eight years. Another trip to Deming is needed and I need another day trip to the Fort Cummings ruins outside of town too. For such a small town Deming has a lot of neat things to see and a good golf course to play. Thanks for reminding me.
