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.

The new hunting and gather exhibition was thought provoking and represented well. We really enjoyed how the curator explored this theme and displayed a wide range of mediums. The museum is charming and rich in history with strong cultural representation around each corner. We really enjoyed our time at the New Mexico Museum of Art.

Well what's not to like about a Museum? Especially a museum showcasing some exquisite pieces by artists who helped establish the museum in 1917, did I mention the same museum is up and running with work by those same artists? Check out this awesome state museum, you'll be glad you did. Very friendly staff are eager to assist you and... More

Did you know there are Georgia O'Keefe paintings in Santa Fe not in the Georgia O'Keefe museum? There here at this small, intimate museum of art in the heart of Santa Fe. It was great. Cool adobe building and it's quite large inside. Entrance fee is minimal and there is some cool paintings. The inner courtyard is worth the price... More

Santa Fe is a city with many fine museums, and this one is a standout. Its popularity with tourists is underpinned by its central location and heavy publicity. I loved the design and layout of this museum, which captures the "regional spirit" very well. I'd very much like to return and spend more time here.

This is a smaller art museum than I would have expected in a city as famous for its art as Santa Fe. The first floor was mostly paintings with a New Mexico theme, while the second floor was a photographic exhibit. Included within the displayed items were a few Georgia O'Keeffe paintings, an Ansel Adams photo, and a Felipe Archuleta... More
