New Mexico Military Institute Weapons Room

This room is dedicated to the New Mexico Military Institute.  The history of NMMI runs parallel with the New Mexico National Guard.  Since its inception, up to 20% of the serving officers in the NMNG were commissioned through NMMI.  The weapons collection that serves as the central focus of this room is one of the finest small arms collections in the Southwestern United States.  This room currently holds 50 rifles and muskets, 22 pistols, 11 machine guns and submachine guns, 27 bayonets and daggers, and 8 swords – all dating from 1834 to present day.  Additional weaponry can be found on the main floor.
