“Nice place if you can get there.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2009

The Maxwell Museum is a well designed musuem. The exhibits and artifacts are well chosen. Not worth the effort to find it. Absolutely NO signs to tell you where it is. It is located in the middle of the Univ. of New Mexico campus. There is no sign, no parking anywhere nearby, and no one to ask. If you find a parking place in walking distance, the Parking Citation group will be there at the minute the meter expires to give you a ticket. Not worth the aggrievation. They ought to be ashamed of themselves.
