Learn how The West was Won by Women!

The Madeleine Bed & Breakfast Inn is named for my daughter, Madeleine, now age 14.  She is a wonderful and inspiring powerhouse of a young lady!  A new exhibit that is opening at The New Mexico History Museum, Home Lands - How Women Made the West - explores other truly remarkable women were instrumental in the making of the West.  This exhibition runs from Sunday, June 19 through September 11, 2011, and includes historical artifacts, art, photographs, and biographies of individual women who played often-overlooked roles in settling and developing the West.  Guests are also invited to take advantage of a series of lectures, demonstrations and workshops dedicated to these generally unknown women who worked right alongside the men. 

In tandem with this primary exhibit are related exhibitions focusing on particular contributions of Native American, African American, Anglo and Hispanic women. 

We have recommended the New Mexico History Museum to hundreds of guests since they opened in May 2009, and hear rave reviews from each and every one.   As one of the newest and most interactive history museums in the country, it is a great way to learn about the rich history of New Mexico.
