Silver City Museum

Collections from the Silver City Museum


  • Opened in 1967, the museum is a department of the Town of Silver City with support from the Silver City Museum Society. Housed in the restored 1881 Mansard/Italianate H.B. Ailman House, the museum collection resource materials include some 20,000 objects relating to the peoples and history of southwest New Mexico.

    Our permanent collection of over 20,000 objects includes approximately 17,000 photos, the largest and fastest growing collection category. At the nucleus of our photo archive is the John Harlan Collection of some 800 local views from the 1870s-1920s, received in 1974. Many family collections as well as photos sought out from community members are used in exhibits.
