Museum review

Like the Georgia O' Keefe museum, the New Mexico Museum of Art is also outstanding. It is an excellent complement to the O' Keefe museum.

Acknowledging that part of the museum was closed to prepare a new exhibit, there was very little to see here, and only one Georgia O'Keefe piece on display. We were done in 15 minutes.

I came away with a much better knowledge of how today's NM came to be. I especially enjoyed the Harvey House displays and information.

The museum changes it's exhibits every few months. It does not, however, put out world class art all the time - a matter of taste (Mine). If you happen to be handicapped as my wife is, they take you up in a freight elevator. Regards, OldeBear

Quite a good collection of high quality art by regional artists, including Georgia Okeefe. Nice space on second level for temporary exhibits. Nice one on self portrait photography when I was there. The building itself is a gem and worth a look

I spent about 4 hours in this museum about a week ago. I really enjoyed the LowRider Exhibit and especially the Fractured Faith exhibit. I highly recommend anyone to visit this museum.

We enjoyed this but I recommend a guided tour. On our way out we listened to a docent who was guiding a group and realized that is the way to go!

They have beautiful works representing the southwest and the native culture. An exhibit on "Low Riders" was very interesting with paintings and photos.

Part of the museum was closed due to a 2-month construction project, leaving a fairly small display area. Museum store has prints of some items in the museum collection that are not on display.
