3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We made a short tour on Sunday afternoon. It was interesting but there was nothing outstanding to see.

“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Great exhibits! A must see! Visit all the art museums and compare the Spanish Colonia to Native American, etc. Fantastic experiences! Great place to visit! So much for everyone to see! Staff is always helpful! I have been here several times over the years.

“Great variety of local art”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

I wasn't sure what to expect, but this is clearly a major museum, with art from throughout the several hundred years of NM's history -- from early Pueblo pieces to very modern "from the edge" stuff. I would have paid, but our visit was free because it was Friday evening. Great start to a weekend.

“Quite worth the price of admission”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

A very nice collection of art and pottery for a small town with a well rounded catalog of collections. The building architecture is a good backdrop for the art especially in the courtyard and sculpture garden.

“Great Exhibits with a New Mexico theme”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

The Museum of New Mexico had a special exhibit featuring current new mexico artists while we were there. The rest of the exhibits were also enjoyable. The building in which the museum is housed is lovely, especially the courtyard.
