Ghost Ranch Museums
The Museums of Ghost Ranch
The Ghost Ranch Museums are dedicated to advancing research, education and public engagement in Anthropology, Archeology and Paleontology. Come to understand the rich history of the Chama River Valley. See contemporary works hosted as part of the New Mexico Textile Arts. Or see dinosaurs and other fossils found in our very own Ghost Ranch fossil quarries.
The Florence Hawley Ellis Museum of Anthropology celebrates cultures both past and present, that utilized the Piedra Lumbre Valley at some point in time.
The Ruth Hall Museum of Paleontology focuses on fossils that date to the late Triassic (about 200-220 million years ago), including the state fossil of New Mexico, Coelophysis.
In addition to the Museum’s permanent and changing exhibits, we offer tours and a range of exciting activities for visiting school groups throughout the year.
