“Always something great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

Great for visitors to NM to learn about the area. For locals, new shows make for a nice day out- free first Wendesday of each month.

“Go-often”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

No food for us there, but we go frequently to view the traveling art and the changes to the historical disp[lays. The docents are attractive and informed...even the security folks are attentive and unobtrusive. Our experience began 20 years a-go and we're grateful that it's near us in Albuquerque.

“Great Little Museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2012

Next to Old Town it makes for a good affordable indoor diversion to walking around on a hot day. Small museum can be done in an hour though some unique and interesting pieces worth seeing could cause one to linger much longer. Don't miss the outside sculptures. Highly recommended.

“Alb Museum is a must see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012

The special events are amazing. I enjoy the Thursday evening events, the free Sunday entrance, & the special exhibits. The current exhibit - Art of the Americas - is amazing. The Egyptian exhibit was a 10. Check this place out whether you're a tourist or a local.
