Not always sure what I was looking at. Reminds me of the Gardiner Museum in Boston. It pays to spend some time getting acclimated to the set-up.

Fantastic art and a superb gift shop. Make it part of your downtown art-seeing day, along with the O'Keeffe and the NM History Museum.

hopefully the exhibits do change every four months.we kept looking for pictures that related it to beautiful New Mexico.instead we just saw pictures of somebody's face 100 times but not an interesting person to us.

Every time I come to Santa Fe I come to this beautiful little museum. The only downside is the prices have risen and free days have been reduced, but it is still worth the expense. It is easy to see the museum in under an hour or further examine the new exhibits over a couple hours. It is also just... More

Apart from the building itself and a few paintings, you'd better avoid it as there's nothing much to see... Unfortunately some of the paintings we wanted to see weren't on display. Go instead to Georgia O'Keeffe Museum which is, in my opinion, far more interesting.

We loved this - especially our teen daughters. It's housed in a beautiful old building, 100 yrs old next year and is small, calm and cool - perfect for a break from the heat AND has some wonderful exhibits. $12 admission for adults, kids go free. Allow 1 hour. Free wifi.

On the evening we went here, there was a free concert and ice cream social in the beautiful courtyard outside. The two musicians were delightful and very talented, and we enjoyed hearing the five time banjo champion of New Mexico and his talented partner as they entertained for over an hour and a half. The ice cream and tour of... More

Tired of museums full of art mostly by white men? This museum is just the refreshment you need. There were intriguing and varied exhibits when we went: art inspired by lowrider culture, a focus on self-portraits, a retrospective of photography by local New Mexican photographer (and WWII pilot!) Anne Noggle. All were excellent. It's in an interesting old building. Small,... More

The museum has a very fine collection of early Santa Fe/Taos artists plus current showings of local artists. Well worth the visit!
