This museum will take you back to the glory days of New Mexico art. Many great pieces by the Taos school, Dove, Dixon and O'Keeffe. The new wing promises to bring some life to the experience, but happy there are still spots like this in the US.

Have been to this almost 100 year old museum many times but presently there are only two current exhibits. A fair photography exhibit on second floor and an interesting one on Colors of the Southwest on the first floor. This has items from the permanent collection which are always good. Luckily there was a free concert by the SF Community... More

This is a nice museum near the Plaza. It opened in 1917 and has NM artwork dating back to that era. There are classic, well known artists (o'Keefe / Baumann) on display, as well as, newer / less known artists. Don't rush through the courtyard near the entrance -- the murals are very beautiful and were commissioned in the 1930s... More

I recently visited an exhibit featuring artists who came to Santa Fe in the first half of the 20th century. They came from the East, with formal art training, but were drawn to the Southwest. The work was beautiful and diverse. I also visited an exhibit of recent acquisitions, most of which didn't appeal to me (sad to say). The... More

This is a fairly small museum but an interesting collection. The woodblock prints by Gustave Baumann were nice as well as some O'Keeffe works and a nice collection of the well-done landscapes that bring artists out in the first place. Allow about an hour to visit.

This is a fairly small art museum with mostly New Mexican artists. As expected, there are a few Georgia O'Keefe's and some excellent photography and American Indian works. The modern art was unexpectedly high quality. One of the things I really enjoyed about this museum was the relatively high proportion of female artists. It isn't one of the world's great... More

I really enjoyed the alcove exhibit. The museum shop is a nice place for cards & gifts. The courtyard is a good place for a picture

We like art and have visited many art museums in North America and Europe. However, the art here simply did not interest us. I know that many others disagree (read other reviews). However, that is our opinion. Also, there wasn't really all that much art here for such a large display area. The cost is $9.00 for out of state... More

Not necessarily a place for kids though. It was interesting and I was intrigued by some of the exhibits. But I was also through with it after a little more than an hour. Save it for a rainy day.
