NMSU Wildlife Museum

Welcome to the NMSU Wildlife Museum!

We are proud to announce the re-opening of the NMSU Wildlife Museum as of January 2014. The NMSU Wildlife Museum is a vibrant resource that supports teaching, research, and service at New Mexico State University and within the local community in southern New Mexico. A key foundation of the museum is the preservation of the inherent educational and research value of the museum specimen holdings.

The NMSU Wildlife Museum has over 6,000 specimens representing major vertebrate groups with some extremely valuable specimens dating back to the early 1900s. These specimens are a testament to the origin and historical distribution of wildlife in southern New Mexico and elsewhere in the American Southwest. Specimens are used by students, researchers, local resource agencies, and the public.
