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,...

I hadn't read any reviews of this place so didn't know what to expect - what a revelation. The building itself was beautiful with a stunning internal courtyard. The exhibition that most caught our imagination was the "Colours" one. I had heard of few of the painters but that is more about my ignorance than the art; the standard of... More

This small museum houses some great art! The Art on the Edge contemporary exhibit included several works (particularly the mixed media ones by Kate Rivers), that made me pause for minutes at a time. If you visit before 7/26/15, don't miss the photography exhibit on the second floor (if you need to use an elevator, ask a guard). The Gay... More

I was told that this is the one museum that was designed and built to be a museum. the Courtyard is absolutely gorgeous and the exhibits were such a great window into the southwest. I believe the Colors of the Southwest was the main exhibit while i was there recently. Beautiful inside and out. Right in the center of town... More

New Mexico keeps on surprising me with steady and sometimes dramatic improvements in the state museums. The NM Museum of Art is a good example. I have visited any number of times--I'm a retired museum director--and always found this particular museum to be a bit static and dull. But not now. On this visit, the museum had installed a truly...

We had been before and that's why we returned. The building is eye-catching, with an outdoor garden square in the middle with hanging chili peppers. Another area opens out to another garden with beautiful statues and a wisteria that was blooming at the time. We enjoyed the "Colors" exhibit of painting, very Southwest and very colorful. Another room showed huge... More
