University Museum at Fleming Hall
The 2016 GO Bond for higher education funded the WNMU Museum at Fleming Hall’s $3.2 million transformation. The 101-year-old National Register of Historic Places building is now an open, light, secure and climate-controlled environment that highlights the university’s collections and enhances the visitor experience.
Renowned for its comprehensive collection of Mimbres materials, the university museum also houses other significant collections. This renovation allows more of its collections than ever to be on display in secure visible collection areas.
By renovating the museum’s physical space, the university meets the museum’s needs to better advance understanding of the diverse cultural and artist heritages of southwest New Mexico and more proficiently enable scholarly research, collection, interpretation and exhibition.
