This is one of the best museums I have ever been to. Both teenaged girls loved it. Set up in sections from art to history to innovations in NM, it is a must see for all who live in or visit Albuquerque.

We spent a couple of hours at this museum. The special exhibition was focused on Albuquerque's history and was very informative. There is some very interesting art on display. It is definitely worth a visit.

It has art and history and even a small cafe and gift shop. The sculptures outside are beautiful as well. Highly recommend a stop here! There are times that... More

Besides extraordinary art, both inside and outside the building, the museum's new "Only Albuquerque" is outstanding and worthy of a visit from all ages. After an entry plaza that is a satellite image of the entire a Rio Grande valley to the four rooms highlighting aspects of Albuquerque people's' lives, you will never stop looking all around and above you....

This is quite different from a normal museum, in that most of the story is told through a varied display of mainly modern art. Need a good 1.5 hours to go through it. It is conveniently placed next to the Old Town area. There is free parking on the street, but if you do park in the car park you... More

Wonderful museum that has a blended approach to art media, video and topical focus ... telling the story of "who we are and how our unique culture developed over time". Multi-cultural and age spectrum was carefully woven together with hand's on displays for kids that told their stories so well they spoke to Seniors watching the kids discover how bricks... More

My adult daughter and I spent several hours enjoying this little gem of a museum and learning more about Albuquerque. The exhibits are all so well done and depict history and art in visual and hands on displays. When we exited the galleries we found live music and dancing in the lobby. What a wonderful surprise!
