Great museum. Be sure the ticket seller knows what they are doing. We purchased all access passes... which should give us all access. We clarified this with the ticket seller who assured us, our tickets included the "movies" and all else- the price is that high because of this.... so off we go,... come time to go the the dynamax...

As a local, it had been many years since I last visited the Albuquerque Museum (of Art and History). It has changed and improved and is a prize the community can be very proud of with an interesting mix of art and history exhibits. I especially liked the public art exhibit, with images and discussions of the 100s of public... More

I was supposed to visit Petroglyphs National Monument, but a snow storm closed the road. So I decided to head to Old Town. You can park here, pay the $4 entry fee, and then keep your car there until 5pm while you wander around Old Town. I mostly went in to kill time but was pleasantly surprised by what I... More

We went here on our way to old town and never made it to old town since this museum was so interesting. Worth the side trip - and don't forget the natural science museum close by ( we didn't get to see it, but will now that we know it is there). And don't forget to validate your parking lot... More

The sculptures that everyone can see outside were outstanding! Some were historic, come were funny; we loved every one. Inside, we fully enjoyed the many different types of art.

Within one block of the historical Albuquerque Old Town, this is a great museum. Many different galleries of art, photography, history and a new gallery of "Rad Gadgets". A great place to visit and learn.

The museum is first class architecturally. We thoroughly enjoyed the interesting exhibits throughout. However, the small written descriptions that one normally finds adjacent to each work in a fine museum are ludicrous. Why not simply provide information regarding the artist and the time period in which it was created? Here, someone has added their own 'interpretations' of each work--some of... More

This is an amazing, educating, fun collection. There are works related to the "old west" pre-statehood New Mexico, the atomic bomb development and culture, Native American life, the beautiful landscapes - the list goes on. They also have a fine collection of sculpture arrayed as to provide a nice walk around the museum and up to Old Town. The docents/staff... More
