It's a pleasure to encounter monument staff who truly enjoy conveying local history to visitors. Expect to spend an hour in the main area at least. Lots of items on display, plenty to read, and a large mural which might alter your place and time.

Due to time concerns, we just visited the museum. It is a beautiful memorial remembering those who were forced to participate on The Long Walk. The mural inside was quite moving. A place to take some time to reflect as we move forward as a nation.

Missed this place a few years ago and vowed to return. Aaron was super knowledgeable on the history of the event. Beautiful surroundings make for a relaxing visit.

I can't even begin to tell you all that is available here. It is important information for everyone to hear as it really provides an opportunity to see how easily a group of us can be steered off course from the people we should be, and to understand how vulnerable any group of us can be. Please leave enough time... More

Bosque Redondo means circle of trees. It represents a sad time in US history when just as the black man was being freed, the Indians were being imprisoned, killed and maimed. Here find out about the Apache and Navaho tribes being rounded up by Kit Carson and corralled at Ft. Sumner. Very modern facility that is very lightly used by... More

We stopped in here on a side trip to West Texas. It is a bit out of the way but there is quite a bit of history located here.
