Geocache Description:

The Space Murals Museum can easily be seen from Hwy 70 in Organ, New Mexico. The museum is privately-owned and has free admission. The owner has a really great collection that is of interest to all ages. The outside portion has a huge water tank painted in space murals as a tribute to Challenger and Apollo missions, as well as a small replica of Challenger space shuttle and several space and rocket related items. There is a small gift shop with very reasonable prices.


Our two boys, ages 9 and 6, thought this would be a great place for a geocache. It is not located on the museum property because their gate is closed on Sundays and after 5pm every other day. We did inform the staff that we wanted to place a geocache in the area and obtained approval, so if you can't find it or need help, they are aware of it's location. Park in the Space Murals Museum parking lot (always open, the gate does not close access to the parking lot). Walk to the east, just past the parking lot and look for an obvious marker to the north. Please sign/stamp the log, take a goodie, and leave something fun in return. There is also a letterbox in the area. It is not ours, but we were informed of it by the museum staff and located it. Have fun! UPDATE 12/26/14: We are currently out of the area for a while visiting family. Recent finders are reporting that this cache needs a new container. If anyone has a plastic container or even a bag to transfer contents to, I would be grateful so that they don't get wet. A huge thank you!
