Deming, New Mexico Museum

I enjoy museums - Deming is in Luna County and this is their museum.

An old time pay telephone - Note the slots at the top of the phone for coins.

There are thousands of dolls here.

This looks so much like a painting that I found it hard to believe that is actually a quilt.

The museum is beautifully decorated for Christmas.

And their table is set for Christmas dinner.

Members of the New Mexico National Guard fought in WWII under General MacArthur in the Philippines.  They were captured by the Japanese and suffered through the Death March.  Several were beheaded by the Japanese. Pictured here is a list of the Luna County men who served in WWII and pictures of several.

There are thousands of pieces of Native American pottery and also handmade baskets.  You could easily spend and entire day in this museum and not get bored.

Maybe someday, we will come back this way.
