The Bosque Redondo Memorial is a history museum in Fort Sumner, New Mexico. It tells of the past of Fort Sumner and the Bosque Redondo Indian Reservation.

Built as a part of the Fort Sumner National Monument, the Bosque Redondo Memorial tells of the tragic tale of the Bosque Redondo Indian Reservation that was located in the site from 1863 to 1868. The site was where the US Army forced the Native Americans to ?go to? after they resisted from the settlement that was taking over their lands and homes. The Indians called the event as ?The Long Walk?, and the reservation as ?H?weeldi?, which means ?place of suffering?.

The Bosque Redondo Memorial looks back at this tragic event and informs the public about its existence.
