Los Lunas Museum of Heritage and Arts

Another good library/museum is the Los Lunas Museum of Heritage and Arts. The New Mexico Genealogical Society had their March 2008 program there.

Presently, the museum has two exibits: one of the "Civil War in New Mexico" and the other on the "Founding Families of Los Lunas - Luna/Otero Exhibit." Both are great exhibits that include artifacts, photos, and video presentations.

The library is at

251 Main St. NE
Los Lunas, NM 87031

Do a map search to get directions. It's right next to a water tower. Literally - the water tower is in the parking lot.

Like many museums, this one relies on contributions. You may send a donation to their post office box at

PO Box 1209
Los Lunas, NM 87031

They are building up their genealogy collection. If you ever get a chance to find Jim Rickey at the library, he'll help you out with your research. Speaking of which, he wrote up a document titled "Commonly Accessed Websites of Interest to Genealogists in New Mexico." It has a bunch of links that you may find useful. It can also be found on their website.

One more link. Here is a story about the museum in the Valencia County New Bulletin. It also mentions the program that NMGS did at the museum.
