Museum To Close Early For Christmas


he New Mexico Museum of Space History and Clyde W. Tombaugh IMAX Dome Theater will close at 1:00 pm on Monday, Dec. 24th, and remain closed through Christmas Day, Tuesday, Dec. 25th, in order for staff to spend time with their families.

“In the past, the Museum and Theater have only closed on Christmas Day but this year we thought we would start a new tradition and close early on Christmas Eve. Our visitors will no doubt be spending that time with their families and we felt it was important to give our staff the same opportunity,” said Museum Executive Director Chris Orwoll. “We wish our community a very merry Christmas and hope that everyone will bring all their friends and family to visit us when we reopen Wednesday morning, Dec. 26th, at 9:00 am.”

The New Mexico Museum of Space History is a division of the NM Department of Cultural Affairs. For more information, call 575-437-2840 or toll free 1-877-333-6589.
