This is on Museum Hill. A beautiful peaceful site with one of the best views in Santa Fe. It is a great spot for taking photographs too.

Allan Houser was an amazing artist and his great sculptures remain a tribute to his legacy. I love the character visible through the brass.

Alan Houser is the most famous Native Artist and everybody should see this exhibit. The guide was fabulous, very... More

We've been fans of Allan Houser's sculpture for many years. This is an extraordinary collection and in a gorgeous setting. The museum has some great printed background information on Allan Houser that helps round out the experience.

This is a wonderful sculpture garden. Took the kids and they loved it too. Great to expose them to a local talent with such a rich history - not to be missed!

This outdoor museum of Allan Houser's extraordinary work is a must see when you go to Santa Fe. We planned our drive from Albuquerque to Santa Fe so we could visit the sculpture garden on the way. Houser's work beautifully exemplifies Native American life. He was a master. Our tour guide, Santana, provided wonderful detail about the artwork and the... More

Small group tours must be reserved for $25 per person... More
