The Zuhl Museum is one museum you should not miss if you’re visiting Las Cruces, New Mexico. Â 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. Â 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. Â 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! Â 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.
