Today we joined some of our fellow convergence attendees for brunch and a trip to the Deming Luna Mimbres Museum, which is operated by the Luna County Historical Society. This is easily a 2-4 hour museum visit. They have a LOT of items on display, including:
- Period rooms
- Antique machines and tools
- War memorabilia
- Indian artifacts
- Gems and geodes
- An important collection of Mimbres pottery
I took a selection of images with my iPhone XS Max. A lot of displays are behind plexiglass, so I tried to minimize the reflections.
The quilt is very close to the entrance, so it is the first thing you see after signing in on the register.
Bob will tell you that the Norden bombsight was so hush hush that even the bombardiers using the bombsight couldn’t talk about it. Now you find it out on display in random museums (almost every air museum we’ve been to).
We saw another one of these graphotype machines in the Commemorative Air Force Museum in Mesa, AZ.

Later in the day
Late Saturday afternoon, clouds started rolling in, the wind started picking up, and I caught some interesting cloud photos.
