For our last day in New Mexico we decided to see what Deming had to offer, we stopped at the visitor center to get some ideas. After a nice chat with the volunteer there we took her suggestion and headed to the Deming Mimbres Museum and what a treat that turned out to be. The museum is in the old Armory building built in 1916 and purchased by the historical society in 1977.
The museum has an all volunteer staff and everything in it has been donated, they get no funding from the state and they operate on a donation basis. One of the volunteers was from New Hampshire and had family in VT, we visited with her a bit, as we were getting started on our self guided tour we overheard the next couple coming in saying they were from VT too. Well of course we had to say hi to them also, it's not often we see other folks from our home state. The museum has an eclectic collection of things from Native American pottery and artifacts, a Doll Room, the Cowboy Exhibit, a Harvey House exhibit, the Gem & Mineral Room, Military Room, Antique Autos and much more. If you are ever in Deming stop by the museum, there is something for everyone.

After an enjoyable 3 hours perusing the museum we our tummies were rumbling, we asked for recommendations to a Mexican restaurant. Irmas did not disappoint and if we were here longer we would be back, easily one of the best Mexican restaurants we've been to in a very long time.
