Now run by art museum where I picked up a clearly modified schedule, but it too was wrong. They now close December and January as posted after a 30 minute drive there. So call since all three source that should have provided accurate info were wrong! Truly disappointing.

Casa San Ysidro is a gem of living history for the Spanish and Mexico Southwest. Lovingly restored it provides a detailed history of how our ancestors lived and worked. The rooms, the buildings, the artifacts, the attention to detail brings the 1700 and 1800's truly alive. The docents who lovingly care for this treasure make the experience what it is.... More

The Casa San Ysidro is a former home that has been transformed into museum where you can see how the early Hispanic families lived in New Mexico. It is set across the street from the old Catholic Church that is now a community center. The only problem is openly only a few times a year for the public, but I... More

Casa San Ysidro is only open a few times a year, and the best time to go is during the Corrales Harvest Festival which occurs the last weekend of September every year when all of the . You'll see life as it was back in the early days of (now) New Mexico. Amazing how well they lived without any modern... More

Lovely historic home filled with historic items from all around New Mexico- Spanish Colonial religious art, weaving, embroidery, agricultural tools and animal enclosures all with a knowledgeable guide with a good sense of humor. Enjoyable for the serious history buff or the casually curious.

The Casa San Ysidro is a true gem in Corrales. The City of Albuquerque has neglected this fine property to the point of actually crumbling adobe walls and ceilings. There is obviously no landscaping or cleaning of the ancient decor. Dust abounds everywhere and it is a pity someone doesn't fix it up (Mayor Berry) ??? There was no manager... More

As a descendant of the original colonists I am always thrilled to learn more about my history. The beautifully & thoughtfully preserved Casa San Ysidro is a treasure. The docent was very well informed and engaging.

This house was an old Spanish-colonial ranch at one time. Our docent named Joe was very good and entertaining. This is one of those places that may not be a trip highlight but nonetheless one you will be glad you took the time to see. My only disappointment was that we could not take pictures inside. It had something to... More

I'm glad I finally got to see this house museum after several attempts. It is well worth the effort but I doubt that many people know about it and that fewer can get in to see it. The structure is a replica of a territorial/colonial era rancho that was constructed as a vehicle for displaying the material culture items from... More
