Established in 1959, the New Mexico University Museum has provided forty-five years of service to the university and the community. The University Museum assists New Mexico State University in providing quality education, advancing knowledge and enriching culture through research and providing service to the people of New Mexico. Through its care and maintenance of donated ethnographic, historic and prehistoric objects it preserves an important part of Southwestern and Border region culture and history. The Museum also encourages student and faculty research on the diverse cultural materials.

The NMSU Museum is now home to a unique and comprehensive collection of both prehistoric and historical pottery. This collection includes almost 600 pottery vessels that reflect the vibrant artistry and beauty of Southwestern and Mesoamerican ceramics. The pottery is both prehistoric and historical and comes from throughout the southwest and Mesoamerica. There is also an extensive type collection of sherds from New Mexico and Chihuahua to be explored, as well as other educational materials.
