You bring the adventurous spirit,
we'll supply the archaeology!
All 2021 events are postponed until the pandemic is under control and our state's restrictions are lifted, most likely until the appropriate time in 2021.  We apologize and look forward to having events and gatherings again!  Call the museum if you have questions at (505) 632-2013.

Educational Groups

Bastille Day

There are always openings on our board of directors, the people who help us plan for the future, organize and staff our events, and help us keep perspective in the wider world outside of archaeology.  If you care about our mission of protecting sites and helping the public to have better education and experiences about what we do, and live nearby, please consider joining our board!  Background in archaeology is not required.  Meetings are the 4th Tuesday of every month at 6 pm here at the museum (or on Zoom as required).

Events and Activities

Salmon Reunion

May is New Mexico Heritage Preservation Month!  Museums all over the state will offer special events and activities, and you can find out about them from the NM Historic Preservation Division of the NM Department of Cultural Affairs. A calendar of statewide events is available on their website.  Here at Salmon Ruins, we sometimes offer specials in the gift shop, Native American crafts and demonstrations, or a short guided tour of our site that you can sign up for by calling the museum.  These will be advertised in April so you have time to plan for your visit.
