Time Travel from Home!

Kids and families are spending lots of time at home together during this time of COVID-19 closures; and managing education from home can be challenging, so we’d like to share some virtual resources to help you learn more about New Mexico’s history, culture and traditions.

Whether you’re homeschooling, looking for a fun project to try together, or are simply interested in the unique history of the Land of Enchantment, Las Golondrinas is here for you!


Welcome! We invite you to take a journey to the past at “The Ranch of the Swallows.” This historic ranch, now a living history museum, dates from the early 1700s and was an important paraje or stopping place along the famous Camino Real, the Royal Road from Mexico City to Santa Fe. Experience the life of another time in a location unlike any other in America.
