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

There is an amazing amount of Historic artifacts at the Museum and a delightful way to spend a few hours learning about lifestyles of New Mexico. A Great building..Good Gift Shop.. Location right where the Jitney drops you off when taking the Road Runner from Albuquerque..

We only had a few minutes to run in and look. Chose the gift shop to spend our moments. Beautiful items. The sales clerk was as "sweet as she could be." Despite being from Santa Fe, she claimed the Southern accent came from attending college in Texas.

Upon entering the museum's lobby, I was stunned to discover that New Mexico residents pay $6 to enter while everyone else is charged $9. I am a Californian where no one from out of state ever pays a premium for anything except university tuition. In my travels around the world, I've never seen this kind of fee-driven discrimination at a... More

You never know what the monochromatic adobe buildings hold. The New Mexico Museum of Art is a feast of color inside. There is something to be said about the lull of brown hues in Santa Fe. When color pops up, you pay attention. We visited the museum during the "Colors of the Southwest" exhibition. It was just what we needed.... More

Quickly went thru the museum. Some interesting nm art, but not worth the $9 price when there are so many free galleries in Santa Fe.

I have been here numerous times to watch concerts held in the auditorium. The acoustics are divine and the architecture is stunningly beautiful. The exhibits change and tell a story of the past. If you visit there is a hidden gem that goes unnoticed in the auditorium. Go to the stage and on the left is a built in pipe... More

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.
