LAS CRUCES, New Mexico (KTSM) – The Las Cruces Museums will be temporarily closed to the public starting Friday, October 23 through November 14, 2020.

New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham announced on Tuesday that all state-run museums and historic sites are to shut down in order to slow the high spread of COVID-19 infections.

With the latest health order in effect, the Branigan Cultural Center, Las Cruces Museum of Art, Museum of Nature & Science, and Railroad Museum will all be closed to on-site visitation to minimize the risk of community spread, officials announced.

The Las Cruces Museums reminds the public that there are free programs and experiences online via its Facebook and Instagram @LCMuseums social media accounts.
