    This was a great museum that was packed with artifacts of the old days, and memorabilia of the families that lived/live here. It was a treat to see such detail of things saved and displayed on the three floors, plus outlaying buildings.

    I only was able to enjoy only three murals. I was on limited time since my sister doesn't appreciate all the little things of traveling. She rolls her eyes all the time. Her loss.

    The first is called Dodge & the Cowboy Mural on Adam & Route 66.

    The second is Where's My Horse #1 & #2 murals on 3rd & Hines Ave.

    The thrid is Tucumcari Lumber Co. True Value Store at 221 S 1ST St.

    The fourth is VFW Veteran's Patriotic Mural Located on 105 E. Main Street.

    Please check out the map because there is so much more.

    A pretty neat museum that's part of the local community college. Since they specialize in bronze castings, they've made replicas of many dinosaur bones. Good to see some great fossils and dinosaur tracks, eggs, amber, and artwork portraying the large creatures that once roamed this earth. This museum provides students and visitors with an interpretive look at New Mexico/Colorado and related area's rich fossil records and geological stratas, equipt with a modern paleontology lab with the latest equiptment for preparing fossils. The museum has 10,000 square feet of exhibit space comprised of donated specimens and artwork from individuals, organizations, businesses, and local governmental entities. Mesalands has one of the world's largest collections of bronze skeletons, fossils, and replicas of prehistoric creatures. The Museum also possesses one of the world's only Torvosaurus skeletons - a rare relative to Tyrannosaurus Rex. Museum has a pretty nifty Museum shop as well. Rating: 3 1/2 stars out of 5. Visited 10/01/2005.

    There are still a fair number of buildings that show how the town was once a mecca of tourism on the way west. Today, it is much less traffic, but still the townfolk try to keep things "alive"
