This museum is amazing- I thoroughly enjoyed viewing different forms of folk art and children's toys. To full enjoy it, use the audio device tour. You won't fully understand different showings in the museum. Takes 1-2 hours to go through.

This is an amazing museum filled with folk art from around the world. The exhibits are incredible, lots of colour and so many things to look at. It is certainly different from all the other museums I have been to and well worth the tour.

Even after reading much praise about this museum, I was not prepared for the scope and richness of its collection. The holdings are thoughtfully arranged into thematic/topical clusters that allow you to appreciate overlapping themes in folk art around the globe.

This museum contains huge collections of folk art that are fascinating for young and old. The dioramas of miniature towns and settings are unbelieveable works that depict early Spanish community scenes. This is a must-see in Santa Fe. Follow your tour with lunch at the...More
