The BWD Museum

The museum is located on the Eastern New Mexico University campus. Our exhibits are located in the old university dining hall. We moved to this spot in 2017, which has allowed us to be conveniently located on the ENMU campus.

Exhibit Hall

Our exhibits change regularly, but always include information on the archaeological history of the Blackwater Draw site and highlights from our collection. 

Some of the artifacts you can find on exhibit are stone tools and animal bones from the Blackwater Draw site and larger region, Southwest pottery from our private Miles collection, and historic pieces, such as Native American beadwork.
