The Zuhl Museum is one museum you should not miss if you’re visiting Las Cruces, New Mexico. This museum is part art gallery and part natural history.
The TripAdvisor reviews gave it high marks but said it was small so I was afraid that my friends would not be interested but I was wrong.
The picture below is of an amethyst quartz. Quite impressive, no?
The rock on the left in this next picture is called Smoky Quartz.
The large beautiful log below shows a polished fossil conifer Araucaria that was cut in half. Pretty colors, no?
Here’s a picture of Ichthyosaurs ~ a fast swimming reptile.
Lastly, we have a Crinoid which is an animal that belonged to the Phylum Echinoderms and lived attached to the seafloor.
Okay, I changed my mind ~ I feel compelled to share this next picture with you which is of banded iron formations ~ the colors would go very well on a quilt, no?
That’s it! I hope you enjoyed the pictures and, if you’re debating whether to visit the museum, I encourage you to visit as there’s a lot more to see.
