This is a must-see museum in Santa Fe. We have been several times and enjoyed every visit. We recently went to see the excellent special exhibit on turquoise. Stunning jewelry; information about the various styles and types of craftsmanship. We were fortunate to have a tour led by the docent Henry, an anthropologist who is knowledgeable about Native American customs... More

In some ways this smallish museum was my favorite because I can not think of anywhere else I've visited where you can see modern Native American art. A bonus was the screening room where we watched 3 short dramas/ documentary films about the American and Canadian native people's 20 th century experience. Not enough focus is put on this period...

Convenient location. Quality exhibits of outstanding Native American Art. Reasonably priced (Senior, student and New Mexico resident rates). I've been twice. Exhibits regularly rotated. Will visit again.

This museum has a nice collection of artifacts and art, some contemporary. If you are in the southwest, it makes total sense to learn more about the history, culture, and art. i had a wonderful free docent tour of the special turquoise exhibit (February, 2015) and it was very educational. The outside sculpture garden is excellent, especially on a sunny... More

This is a major achievement in creating a learning experience that is not well known. The beauty of the displays is a major achievement. The turquoise trail exhibit is very impressive. great gift shop.

We enjoyed seeing the many artifacts and reading about them. The turquoise exhibit was especially beautiful for those who enjoy seeing quality jewellery and other beautiful things. It is well worth a visit. The cost is $9.00 for out-of-state visitors, although we had the $25.00 museum pass.

Don't go into the this museum, was what the first sign said, unless you are in the mood and want to learn more about the people that inhabited and still inhabit these lands. Never before been asked to get into the right frame of mind to visit a museum. But it was that type of place. A place that showed... More

This is a most extra ordinary museum where you can spend days actually learning about the Native Americans, especially in New Mexico. It is located on Museum Hill, Camino Lejo, Santa Fe, NM

After many visits to Santa Fe we finally made it to Museum Hill and to this museum. We picked a good day for a museum visit since it rained most of the day. (which was needed and very nice) We enjoyed the displays and the and the staff was very helpful and well informed.
