great museum

We were looking for fun stuff for our kids to do and this place could keep them busy for hours. I would recommend taking your kids here if you don't have plans as we didn't.

Our guidebook did not have much to say about this museum, and we saved it for our last morning before heading to the airport. I wish we had had more time than the two hours we spent there.

We went to see the shoes display, which was interesting even if some of the shoes were more than a little strange. The permanent exhibits are also nice.

I went in to see an exhibit on the history of shoes, and ended up going through all 7 sections of the museum taking about 2 hours (that is a long time for me). Gives an interesting cultural background on New Mexico.

This is a wonderful museum. They have six different venues going on. We went to see killer heels and then went to all the other rooms. Very well put together and we stayed longer than we planned which was fine.

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.
