Never quite sure what to expect when it's contemporary art - that is such a wide ranging term. And the art here really runs the gamut. The staff at the reception desk was great - 5 stars for being helpful. One of my favorite pieces...More

Native American art evolves, despite preconceived notions. And this museum is a great place to review the changing times and attitudes of new artists. Great place.

We arrived when main gallery of touring exhibits was empty. Saw rest of Museum at half cost due to that. Could make use of some of their hallway space for displays. Easy location near old plaza.

I enjoyed the way the museum was organized by geologic locations. It was the end of the day, and I was tired. If I go back to Santa Fe, I will spend more time on museum hill. This is a great museum.
