Zuhl Museum reopens doors after nearly two-year closure

Attention museum lovers: the Zuhl Museum at NMSU has reopened its doors to the public.

The museum reopened in February 2022 after being closed to the public since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. The museum’s hours are from 12 to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and every second Saturday of the month. COVID-19-safe procedures will be in place for the safety of the public and staff. 

The Zuhl Collection includes more than 1,800 fossils, minerals and petrified wood donated to the university by Herb and Joan Zuhl in 2000.

“We promise it is worth the wait,” says Tiffany Santos, the collection’s director. “We took this time to do some major renovations to the exhibits. If you have visited us in the past, the museum has become a whole new experience.”
