Sharlot Hall Museum contains 4 acres of historic buildings, exhibits, galleries, and gardens. The highlight is the Territorial Governor’s Mansion, which had been restored by poet and historian Sharlot M. Hall when she opened the Museum in 1928. Exhibits in seven historic buildings, constructed 1864-1937, trace the heritage of the area.
Sharlot Hall Museum has an amazing variety of exhibits, from our newest exhibit on the Clovis people to our extensive American Indian basket collection, Civil War history and much more.
