Exhibits:

In a Nutshell: Growing Nuts in NM

Nuts grown in New Mexico are the subject of an outstanding new temporary exhibit in the Museum’s North Corridor. Few crops are more diverse and more individually tied culturally and economically to the various geographical areas of New Mexico than the state’s bountiful nut crops. Each of the state’s top nuts – piñons, peanuts, pecans, and pistachios – has its own story to tell about how and why it is grown and harvested. The exhibit covers everything from the definition of a nut, to its health benefits. In between is a fascinating look at the history, research, and uses as well as growing and harvesting techniques. The exhibit is on display until Sept. 25, 2016.

Museum hours: Monday through Saturday: 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Sunday: Noon to 5:00 PM.
