“Are you kidding me??”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

My wife and I were trying to decide where to go in Santa Fe and we thought the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum should be first on the list. Wrong!! First, they may want to actually get some G.O'K paintings!!! They have a couple, a boring video of her playing in a loop, some torn out notebook sketches, a fake tent that is supposed to be hers while camping.....We looked in several directions to try and see if we were missing the other rooms, sections, collections, NOPE, that couple of pieces is it!!!

Save you $24 for dinners that cost too much. Go to the plaza, go to Canyon Rd. see great artwork and great artists there, all you can handle. It isn't that Georgia wasn't a great artist, we just didn't experience enough of it to tell.

“Watch both videos”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013 via mobile

I loved the beautiful small museum. It was just enough to intrigue and explain without overload. Be sure to watch both videos. They were excellent. The museum is set up well and the art is well placed. I want to visit her homes north of Santa Fe one day!

“Mediocre collection of O'Keeffe's art”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

Unfortunately, due to politics, most of O'Keeff'e masterpieces are elsewhere. This is a second-rate collection that is small and, for the most part, dissappointing. A unconvincing rotation of related exhibits, most with the same paintings in different locations makes it a real bore.

We loved the Georgia O'keeffe Museum, perfect size, great info. Great for spending an hour or two in the center of Santa Fe and learning about a great American artist

“Santa Fe trip wouldn't be complete without a taste of Georgia O'Keefe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013 via mobile

Santa Fe is an art lovers paradise. Georgia O'Keefe is an iconic American artist, so just go, and be amazed. Beautifully arranged works and bright, informative docents. Don't miss the two video presentations before you begin your walk-through!
Finish up with a visit to the gift store where you will find gorgeous prints of her work in all sizes offered at surprisingly low prices.
