|Facility:||Centennial Museum & Chihuahuan Desert Gardens|
|Description:||The Museum's permanent exhibits focus on the natural and cultural history of the Chihuahuan Desert region, the largest desert in North America, extending from central New Mexico deep into Mexico. The extensive stored collections of the Centennial are available for scholarly research. In the temporary galleries, the Museum presents a wide range of exhibits on themes related to border life and culture, both natural and human.
The Museum and Gardens sponsor a number of educational activities for both children and adults. A sale of native plants and a FloraFest lecture on some aspect of native plants take place the last weekend of April every year.
