“Gorgeous, interesting and well executed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

New Mexico's rich art history needs no introduction and this museum has delightfully laid out the traditions. I only wish it were larger with more contemporary art to offer. The courtyard with its murals is one of my fav sitting areas in all of Santa Fe. I go for the beautiful poppies, butterflies, water feature, and murals and sit in the shade of the ramada and soak it in.

“A nice diversion”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

This museum is located right on the square. It was reasonably priced, given the size and diversification. The Peter Sarkisian video works were some of the most creative I have ever seen. They were mesmerizing. There was no guide, which would have been a nice addition, but most of the works had their description on the wall beside them. It is a lot of reading and I could see where small children would get antsy.

Enjoyed sauntering through this museum to take in what it had. It's a great part of Santa Fe and good exposure to art.

“Very Nice Museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

This museum features the work of New Mexico artists and displays them in a pleasant manner. The historical progression exhibit, since the founding by the Spanish was very informative and put everything in perspective. Came away with a better understanding of New Mexico art.
