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

The New Mexico Museum of Art captures the essence of New Mexican History through the Arts. We enjoyed both the permanent and special exhibits. We had not been back to the museum in many years and were so glad to have come back. Definitely worth a visit.

What an enjoyable way to spend a couple of hours. This is a relatively small space filled with a wonderful collection of New Mexico art and artists associated with New Mexico. Exhibits change from time to time but the themes always lead one to enjoy the work and to view it in a different light. The museum building itself is... More

This museum offers exhibits of historic artists associated with New Mexico as well as the work of today's artists. Well worth the visit. It's just located off the plaze

While the museum collection was interesting, the building was as interesting as the exhibits. Use the multi-museum pass.
