“Housed in the old armory and USO building, this museum is awesome! Start with the Bataan memorial outside, then work your way inside. Wonderful doll collection and Deming history. Plan on being there a couple of hours. Extensive and worth the visit.”

“Their museum is awesome! They have a very large collection and it can take a few hours to go through, so plan ahead if you want to look at everything. It is free, but please make a donation if you can. The staff is friendly and glad to help you with anything.”
