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

About a half hour south of the Interstate and a couple of miles east of the Turquoise Trail, the gardens have 10 cares of walking trails which wind through 85 works by this iconic Apache artist who mentored or influenced most of the Native American sculptors who came after him. Small group tours must be reserved for $25 per person... More

Recently I had two occasions to bring overseas guests to the sculpture garden. I was a bit concerned that going twice within three weeks might be too much....I have come away with the feeling that many times would not be too much. It was stimulating and inspiring both times, new wonders to see and feel each time. My guests were... More

The artwork in this sculpture garden is absolutely incredible and is enhanced by the beautiful backdrop of the mountains which surround it. The tour requires reservations and is limited to a small group of visitors which makes the experience very intimate. During our visit we were fortunate to have Philip Houser an artist and the son of Allan Houser accompany... More

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
