The New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science is very proud to announce that it has earned third place in the 10Best.com Reader’s Choice Award!

Museum Director Charles Walter was pleased with the award: “It is always nice to earn accolades, but this one is special because it was decided by our visitors in an open vote.” The Museum was in the top 5 for most of the voting period before finally settling in at number three.
