A Wonderful Place to Learn About Spanish Colonization in New Mexico

So many old and historical artifacts and architecture made us feel like we were actually visiting an ranchero from long ago.

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

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.
