During the month of June, the Railroad Museum will host many programs for the entire family. Enjoy the cool air conditioning in our historic 1910 Santa Fe depot while you explore these events.
The month of June begins our summer evening hours. All City museums – Branigan Cultural Center, Museum of Art, Museum of Nature & Science, and the Railroad Museum - will be open until 7 p.m. on Wednesdays during June, July, and August. In addition, on June 3, you can learn about train safety during an Operation Lifesaver safety presentation. This 30-minute program will be held at 5 p.m. and 6 p.m., and is suitable for all ages, preschool through adult. On June 24, Hank Caruthers will present “The New Mexico Town Company,” a lecture about the organization that made it possible for the railroad to build through Las Cruces.
The Brown Bag Lecture will be at noon on Tuesday, June 9. Presented by Troy Ainsworth, “The Value of Historic Preservation” will explore some of the historic buildings in Las Cruces and the preservation work that is being planned. Ainsworth is the Historic Preservation Specialist for the City of Las Cruces.
Adults who enjoy coloring can come to the Coloring Club on Friday, June 12 and 26. Between 10 a.m. and noon, express your creativity with a variety of coloring pages provided by the museum, or bring your own favorite coloring book.
