Fodor's Review

The Branigan Cultural Center, in a striking 1935 Pueblo Revival building embellished inside with murals by Tom Lea, offers compelling documentary shows with themes like the 1942–1964 Bracero Program (a Mexican guest workers initiative), or a reflection on Frida Kahlo's later years through rarely seen photographs.

Las Cruces Museum of Art next door—of the revitalized Downtown.
