The tour requires reservations and is limited to a small group of visitors which makes the experience very intimate.

Call ahead and make a reservation unless the gardens are holding an open house. This is the right place for the work of such a talented genius, and should not be missed. About 20 mins south of Santa Fe, the setting is just lovely.

A must see. You have to call ahead for a reservation spot. Santana was our guide and was .very enlightening in her descriptions and work experience in the foundry. They are working hard to perpetuate Allen Houser's legacy. It is not far from Santa Fe.

Many people who may even live in Santa Fe have not ventured to this site. Do yourself a favor and drive on out...Allan Houser's work is very soulful and moving. The way the work is placed on the grounds between of meandering paths local plants is just lovely. I encourage all Santa Feans who have not seen this beautiful place... More

I'm a big fan of Allan Houser Indian Sculpture so I love this place. I've seen many of his works at the Smithsonian in Washington D.C. and it's nice we have representation of his incredible sculptures here in the southwest. It's a definite must if you like great, iconic art.

Put this on your list when you travel to Santa Fe. Appointments for tours should be made and you won't be sorry. Just wonderful works by Allan Houser.

If you have two hours to spend, plus 30 minutes travel time by car, don't miss this almost mystical place. A great master, Allan Houser was prolific and his works dot the 150 acre compound, some massive, some small, some marble, some bronze...all of them spectacular.

Tours are by appointment! Good to know before you take the half-hour drive. At least Rt. 14 is designated a scenic drive...

Having spent a few hours walking through the grounds with a very knowledgeable guide, we have a whole new appreciation for this most remarkable artist. Well worth the scenic drive out there.
