The WSMR Museum

The WSMR Museum

The Mission of the White Sands Missile Range Museum is “to collect, preserve, and interpret the history of the greater White Sands area – its peoples, lands, and technological contributions in support of the United States Armed Forces – from the prehistoric era to the present.”

The White Sands Missile Range Museum was established in 1994 to collect, preserve, and exhibit artifacts and other materials relating to the history of WSMR and the Tularosa Basin. Over time, we have changed and expanded our mission, scope of exhibition, and supporting functions to include the history of the surrounding lands’ native peoples and cultures, its flora and fauna, and natural geology and landscapes.
