“Wonderful afternoon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We had some time to kill, and popped in to the museum thinking it would be a quick visit. Three hours, and many wonderful moments later, we left, having visited all the exhibits. Docents were readily on hand to answer questions, and took the time to point out "not to be missed" works. Would have loved to spend more time there.

“Nice Museum”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

For a small museum, they did a nice job. You won't see many names that you recognize, but its worth a visit particularly if you can go on a docent led tour.

“Real New Mexico history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

I love that New Mexico is a multi-cultural state; however, there exists the oldest Spanish colonial era culture in New Mexico(Socorro North), which is often overlooked or confused with Mexican culture to those that are not from here. The Albuquerque museum is a good showing of the original Hispano culture found in NM.

“Decent Art”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

Decent art works, with a good mix of art types. Good flair for the Southwest art. Kids took art classes here over multiple summers, that I would highly recommend if you live in the area.
