Entry to the museum is free. The pottery collection is vast and the detailed history provided on each period of the Mimbres culture is exceptionally well done. The painted pottery designs are intricate and finely detailed geometric and figurative animal and cultural designs. Well worth your time to visit.
Any walk in downtown Silver City is full of architectural fun and variety. There are many buildings from the late 1800's, some are well restored.

Many of the residents and business owners like to play with color.
There are some nice hiking trails at Bear Mountain Lodge, located just a few miles from downtown Silver City and nestled against the Gila National Forest. The Lodge looks like a wonderful place to stay and has some lovely artwork placed throughout the lodge and also on the grounds, courtesy of the Blue Dome Gallery.
