Always has great exhibits. Now there is a lovely turquoise exhibit, and the Buchsbaum pottery hall is fantastic.
Nice museum on museum hill outside the main center. The museum contrasts past and present of Indian culture and provides a good overview of the history with an objective approach. Interesting for adults and kids alike.
Nice little museum to learn about the history and culture of Pueblo Indian tribes in new Mexico. We did the free docent tour in the am and really learned a lot. Great experience.
The museum sits atop Museum Hill. The views are grand. The exhibits are displayed creatively and in a way that makes sense of the complex native peoples and cultures that lived in this beautiful area.
Santa Fe is home to many wonderful museums, and this one is no exception. We visited the Native American music exhibit and a wonderful exhibit of photographs of American Indians--most from the mid to late 19th century. Don't miss the gift shop, also. It has high quality Native American art and is staffed by knowledgeable workers.
This museum gives the NMAI (National Museum of the American Indian of the Smithsonian) a run for the money. While being rather less broad in its scope, the exhibits are first class. You get the feeling of the cultures shown. Great giftshop as well.
We found the museum to be full of rich history and helpful information. The pottery display is fantastic, and be sure to watch the video of pottery making at San Ildelfonso Pueblo. Very interesting! The music display is very engaging also. Make sure you leave yourself enough time to enjoy the whole museum.
At first glance, this is one of those celebrity designer museums where it's more about the architect than it is about the collection. But once you tune out the preening, self-conscious context and focus on the actual artifacts, this museum is simply first-rate. The best part was spending 45 minutes watching a series of videotaped interviews with Native Americans talking... More
Partnered in the same complex as the International Museum of Folk Art, it's a 'natural' to visit both -- we did! While the display is extremely well done, there is also a good deal of 'sameness' -- one visit will suffice!
