Generations

On long term display at the New Mexico Farm and Ranch Heritage Museum

The Museum’s first permanent exhibit takes visitors on an odyssey through 150 generations over 4,000 years of agriculture in New Mexico.

The exhibit uses the biographies of 33 people from New Mexico’s history – some famous, some not famous – to tell the story. It features ancient tools, a replica of a Mogollon pithouse, audio interviews and hands-on activities.

Generations is on long-term display in the Main Exhibitions Gallery.

Also on exhibit at the New Mexico Farm and Ranch Heritage Museum
