I had first visited this museum as a college student in 1980, and it has grown tremendously in the years since. The building itself has a lovely atrium, from which you branch off to the different exhibits. The outdoor sculpture garden is impressive as well.

I enjoyed my visit, particularly the exhibit about the history of Albuquerque. Unfortunately the gallery with art of New Mexico was closed during my visit but there were still many other things to see. You can park in the pay lot next door to the museum and then when you buy your museum ticket let the staff member know the... More

enjoyed this, well laid out and interesting art. Also had a lunch there, one sandwich was enough for the two of us .Sculpture garder wraps around the building, get a map inside so you don't miss anything.

This is my second time to visit the museum. First was Oct 2014. Then a year after, my husband and I decided to go and check it out again. There's always something interesting in a museum... paintings, work of art from the past and the stories surrounding all these just amazed me. I got to know new facts and bits... More

The ABQ museum is a spacious well appointed museum in Old Town. It has an extensive collection of paintings and other items with a recent addition of an exhibit on the history of ABQ. There is plenty of off street parking, It is definitely worth a few hour visit.

This is a great art and history museum! The layout of the museum is interesting and easy to follow and see everything. I really enjoyed the history of the city of Albuquerque, dividing the exhibit into four sections to explore the different things that make the city culture great. The museum does allow photography. I had only about an hour... More
