Spent well over 3 hours here and could easily have spent much longer. A superb collection and insight. Particularly enjoyed the videos of people talking about their lives and culture. One of the world’s great museums.

I absolutely love this place! It's a great place to learn about the indigenous tribes of the US and the indigenous tribes of Central and South Americas as well. It's a beautiful place to also just hang out as well and enjoy the scenery.

This was the first museum we went to on our visit in May. What a tribute to Native Americans, their culture and craft. We were just so taken especially with a 800 piece jewelry collection, the largest in Santa Fe.
