We visited this museum because we arrived in town on Sunday morning and it is free until 1:00 PM on Sundays. The Spiked Heels exhibit was like none other, and so unexpected. We want to go back to take more time to see this. The main reason we visited was for the history of Albuquerque exhibit. This was very well... More

My husband and I really enjoyed the exhibits at this museum and learned a lot about Albuquerque. The high heel exhibit and the Rad exhibit were interesting, bit the multi-sectioned exhibit a out Albuquerque was very educational.

I've seen two different exhibits.....Gods and Heroes and the High Heels and Albuquerque History. My one criticism would be......the lighting in the fine arts area is too dimly lit. It was very hard to appreciate the artwork of Gods and Heroes and the High Heel exhibits because of poor lighting. With that said, the actual exhibits were EXCELLENT!

Had a really nice (and informative) visit to this museum. Loved the artwork, but my definite favorite was the new Only in Albuquerque exhibit. I'm fairly new to the area, and the exhibit taught me a lot and was very well put together.

This museum is excellent and a true jewel for the city. The displays and signage in the galleries are numerous and easy to follow. The exhibit "Only In Albuquerque" is especially interesting. So glad it is a permanent exhibit. The current exhibit of the "high heel shoes" is fascinating but just a bit overwhelming. This museum is certainly worth a... More

When I travel to a new place, I love to find a place where I can learn about the history of an area in an easy to understand, overview kind of way. I stumbled into the museum from the back side, actually wanting to see the fashion exhibit that had not yet started, and decided to go in anyway. I... More

Building is architecturlally significant. Modern and unique. We arrive 1/2 hour before closing and they let us in for free. The exhibit was "Killer Heels." Interesting, but you have to be into shoes. We made it to the gift shop and the clerk was helpful and friendly.

Abq museum's collection is phenomenal -- only wish they had more room to showcase the Warhols and other gems more often. Excellent "Slate" restaurant on site, curator tours with/ Andrew Connors worth searching out, high quality shop featuring New Mex artists, sweet amplitheater great venue for concerts.
