Go visit while the Killer Heels exhibit is on. It was amazingly fun! I could have stayed all day. My son enjoyed the interactive exhibit and modern art but was bored the rest of the time.

My husband and I have been to the Albuquerque Museum many times and have always enjoyed the permanent and special exhibits. Today was the best experience so far. The permanent Common Ground exhibit is always worth a visit with a nice variety of art from NM artists. The new permanent exhibit - Only in Albuquerque - is outstanding. It opened... More

As residents of Albuquerque, we go to the Albuquerque museum frequently. Every show they curate is interesting and beautifully displayed. They have many free days- Sunday mornings, Thursday evenings normally have a performance or concert and cash bar and free entry, and Saturday afternoon is another free family day with art projects the whole family can enjoy doing! The new... More

This is a very nice facility, with great staff and well-placed exhibits. Easy to navigate and very pleasant layout. We saw the "high heels" exhibit - maybe I am old fashioned, but my concept of art probably would not include a fashion/design element like this. Gen Xers probably would dig this vibe. Nice gift shop, pleasant staff. Just ONE Georgia... More

I visited the museum on a whim before my conference start at mid-day. I'm sorry that I didn't have more time. It is a CHEAP admission to a Museum ($4.00) and had quite an interesting set of galleries. The special exhibits "Killer Heels" and "Rad Gadgets" were both fun and fascinating. I took a peek at the "Common Ground" permanent... More
