Deming, New Mexico: Luna Mimbres Museum - A Must See!!! The Doll Room

The Deming Luna Mimbres Museum contains numerous, fascinating and unique exhibits; it is one of the best museums we have seen.  It is located in the old National Guard Armory and takes at least 4 hours to see the exhibits here.  The volunteers that run the museum have devoted their time to a great time capsule with both beauty and interest. It would take at least four hours to fully appreciate this museum.  So....we are going to divide up the museum trip because there are just too many pictures, and we want you to see a good small sample...

First, sorry for glares and such...but shooting through some lights and glass can be difficult for us amateur.  The first stop in the museum is the doll and toy room.  Here lies Snow White and the poor seven drawfs.
