The Las Cruces Railroad Museum is located in the historic Santa Fe Depot. The museum interprets the Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe Railroad’s impact of the railroad on the Mesilla Valley and Las Cruces. Photographs, artifacts, and text panels throughout the museum interpret local history, railroadiana, and the history of several local AT&SF employees. There are three model layouts including one everyone is invited to run.
The museum also offers lectures, classes for adults and children, and guided tours for large groups by appointment. We host two major events each year: the Old Fashioned Holiday Display on the first Friday of December from 5-8pm and Railroad Days which is held in May, on the week of National Train Day.
