The Kenneth E. Brasel Centennial Museum
The NMSD museum is open to visitors on most Mondays from 9 am - noon. Visits are by appointment only. Please call (505) 476-6300 for more information.
The Kenneth Brasel Museum was established in 1987 to celebrate 100 years of education at the New Mexico School for the Deaf. Curated by NMSD staff, students, and the State of NM museum personnel, it now houses one of the most comprehensive collections of American Deaf school history and memorabilia. While the museum was originally intended to display artifacts of the school’s history, it has evolved into a valuable research center for students, historians and writers from across the globe.
