Antique Treasures Day is Jan. 26

Jan 23, 2014

Only one day a year, visitors to the New Mexico Farm & Ranch Heritage Museum get the opportunity to enjoy a behind-the-scenes look at the facilityís collections and preservation program.

On Sunday, Jan. 26, the museum will celebrate its 11th-annual Antique Treasures Day from noon to 4 p.m. Visitors will get a sneak-peek, guided tour into the museumís enormous collections storage room where more than 10,000 artifacts are housed in a climate-controlled environment.

Museum curators will talk about the process of donating artifacts along with their care and preservation once they arrive at the museum. Also part of the tour will be a discussion about how artifacts are chosen for and used in exhibits.

Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for senior citizens and $2 for children ages 5 to 17. For more information, please call 575-522-4100.
