This is one of my favorite museums. Its scale is human, and one can view its exhibits without being overwhelmed. The unique Pueblo Spanish Revival style of architecture is charming, and makes the visitor feel welcome, down to the peaceful courtyard and fountain, where one can rest and reflect in between exhibits. The museum showcases the art of New Mexico... More

My wife and I recently visited the NM museum of art and it really was great . We saw the exhibition titled " Colors of the Southwest" and as a non art lover I was really taken by this exihibiton. There is so much SF history in this exhibition and in the museum itself, I would highly recommend it as... More

This museum is not very big but you can see many modern art paintings of New Mexico life. The patio is a must and you should take some time around. Even if of different styles, the paintings are really interesting ! We had no opportunity to see any temporary exhibitions because there were none at this time (Aug. 2015) but... More

Only had an hour to spend at the museum before they closed, but Really enjoyed the Colors of the Southwest exhibit. Will definitely go back to study it more. Missed the opening of the Gustave Baumann and New Mexico show by a couple of days, but I suspect it will be wonderful. Colorful paintings and sculpture/ceramics by various artists that... More

Every museum in New Mexico picked a color for this statewide program. They chose all the colors. Greatly enjoyed the visit.

Each Summer the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival holds its performances in the St Francis auditorium of the NM Museum of Art. The Museum itself has a wonderful collection that is worth a visit but the St. Francis auditorium is a lovely space in which to listen to music. If visiting Santa Fe during July or August. tickets to the... More

Since renovation this has become a real quality Must See for those same of us who appreciate Southwestern Art & SW Artists. Love the Moroles granite sculptures as well as the historical pieces especially. Well worth a visit.

I did not think this would be as interesting as it is. There is some really great history in New Mexico and this Art Museum helps to bring some of that history to life.

I lived in the area 50 years ago and was very attached to some of the art. it has improved by dividing the collection into three part. The part from the past consists of early southwestern art mostly from Santa Fe and Taos. They have added a new wing which currently showing abstract and representation that has an abstract effect,...
