4100 Dripping Springs Rd.
The museum is 47 acres packed with real stories about real people. The interactive museum brings to life the 3,000-year history of farming and ranching in New Mexico. Visitors can watch a cow being milked, stroll along corrals filled with livestock, enjoy gardens or watch hands-on exhibits such as blacksmithing, quilting, water dowsing and more. Living history demonstrations are occasionally offered on weekends.
A visit to the Museum provides several hours of fun combined with learning. With many exhibits and demonstrations — indoors and outside — there is something for everyone to enjoy.
Visitors of all ages will enjoy the demonstrations, such as blacksmithing, as well as our livestock tours. The demonstration schedule is subject to change, so please call ahead or check with the front desk to learn about that day’s schedule.
Many of the museum’s attractions are outdoors, so visitors are encouraged to take precautions against the sun, especially during the summer months, and dress warmly in the winter. Also, don’t forget to bring your camera.
The barns on the “South 20” portion of the campus close at 4 p.m. each day. Visitors may still walk to see the livestock until 5 p.m.
Eagle Ranch Mercantile has a variety of souvenir and gift ideas, as well as beverages and snacks. We have a spacious parking lot that is ideal for motor coaches, RVs, and trailers; however, there is no overnight parking or camping allowed.
Pets are not allowed in the Museum’s buildings, Heritage Garden, Children’s Discovery Garden, Courtyard or across the bridge where the Museum’s livestock are located. Pets are allowed in the parking lot and visitors are asked to keep them on a leash. There is some shade in the parking lot, and a grassy area on the northwest part of the lot for visitors to walk their pets.

The sixth annual Las Cruces International Film Festival, presented by New Mexico State University and Visit Las Cruces, will run from March 3 to 7. The festival will show more
The sixth annual Las Cruces International Film Festival, presented by New Mexico State University and Visit Las Cruces, will run from March 3 to 7. The festival will show more than 100 films and honor director Peter Bogdanovich, among other film notables who will participate in online question-and-answer sessions. The festival also has added a Native Cinema program this year to honor Native American films and filmmakers. Max Gail, an Emmy Award-winning actor, will be honored for his work.
The 2021 festival will screen 102 films instead of the usual 80 shown at previous festivals.
“The tradeoff is that people can see all the movies they want to see. In the past, often there would be two or three films playing at the same time,” said Ross Marks, festival director and NMSU professor in the Creative Media Institute. “Being virtual, they can see any movie they want any time in the comfort of their own home.”
This year, Marks also is working with Las Cruces restaurants to add local flavor to the festival.
“We’ve had so much community support, we want to highlight our restaurants. Each evening, a local restaurant will sponsor a film screening and make a signature dish, offering it at a special discount,” he said.
Another Las Cruces business, Sports Accessories, Inc., will operate an online store offering 2021 merchandise for the Las Cruces International Film Festival starting in February.
“We’ll have a fully outfitted store with a unique logo for 2021 festival merchandising,” Marks said. “We’ll have shirts, keychains and other items for sale, and it will remain up year-round.”
The films in the 2021 festival represent 36 different countries and will be screened through a partnership with Film Festival Flix. The Las Cruces International Film Festival Channel will provide film lovers the option to purchase an $8 ticket to see an individual film or buy a $25 day-pass to screen as many films as they want in a 24-hour period. For $75, an all-access pass allows pass-holders to spread their film festival viewing over five days.
As much as we would love to gather at the Allen theatres and watch great movies, current conditions make it necessary to stream this year’s festival in the comfort of our own homes. With over 100 fantastic movies, this year’s festival will be one of our best. We have partnered with Film Festival Flix, one of the leading film festival virtual channels. More information on how to stream the festival and our movies and workshops will be made available shortly. We look forward to sharing our incredible slate of films, programs, workshops, and special events with you online. Stay tuned for more exciting announcements.
