Museum Master Plan Study

Las Cruces communities will have opportunities to provide public input on a proposed Short Range Plan and Master Plan Study for the Las Cruces Museum System. The Las Cruces Museums engaged the team from AOS Architects of Santa Fe, along with WOLF Consulting of Las Vegas, NV, and Creative Strategies360 of Santa Fe, to facilitate the creation of a Short Range Plan and a Museum Master Plan Study for the Museum System. Community input is vital to the development and implementation of Museum goals, priorities, and strategies.


The Short Range Plan, Renewing Our Purpose, provides a guide to Museum activities and services through fiscal year 2026, while the Master Plan Study provides analysis of the facilities and explores possibilities for future development of the physical environment and possible programming within the Museums’ environments.

The Short-Range Plan will be presented and discussed on Saturday, March 6 at 1pm, and Wednesday, April 7 at 6pm. The master plan study will be presented and discussed on Tuesday, March 9 at 6pm and Saturday, April 10 at 1pm. You can join the conversation on Zoom at
