One of the finest collections of New Mexican artists anywhere. Current exhibition of high school students' photography is spectacular. The grounds of the museum are filled with exceptional sculptures. All in all, a good place to spend an afternoon in picturesque Old Town Albuquerque.

I wanted to take home one whole hallway's worth of paintings of Southwestern scenery and Native Americans in this museum. Also fun seeing the Navajo rugs and gaucho outfits on display.
