Culture Series and adult programs

Culture Series

Whether it's a presentation about the archaeology of the CaŮada Alamosa or a holiday-themed living history performance, the Museumís monthly Culture Series is educational and entertaining. From New Mexico's State Historian to Chautauqua performers, a variety of presenters are featured throughout the year. Culture Series presentations take place on the second Thursday of each month at 7:00 p.m. Check the calendar for this month's speaker. Admission is a suggested donation of $2.00.

Lifelong Learning

The Museum plays an active role supporting lifelong learning. We enrich and extend visitors' knowledge through contact with artifacts, fascinating exhibitions, and other educational programming. Adults already have a rich store of life experiences but can come to the Museum to increase their knowledge and have fun. Programs especially designed for adults include:

Living History

Make the past come alive by transforming yourself into a historical character that can teach visitors about life in the past. Get involved with research and the re-creation of historical characters and environments. Contact Curator of Education and living history specialist Scott Green at (575) 522-4100 ext.125 for more information.

Adult Workshops

Dowsing, weaving and cooking are just a few of the Museumís recent offerings. See museum calendar for current listings.

Gallery Talks

From a discussion at the pithouse focused upon American Indian agriculture to stories about cattle drives at the chuck wagon, Museum staff and docents highlight the fascinating history on display. See museum calendar for current listings.
