Joy Hoff Howard wrote on August 17, 2012: Farmington is a wonderful place, still it comes as a shock to find such a world class museum in a small town. The Bolack Museum would do any large city proud. It is truly the greatest museum I have ever visited and is so artfully designed as to show each animal at its very best. This Museum is one of the finest I have ever seen. It is so perfectly designed that it shows each animal in the finest possible light. One would expect to find such a world class museum in a large metropolis rather than the delightful Farmington, New Mexico.
