A bit hard to find, South of Santa Fe a few miles off of state highway 14, this sculpture garden is large, well presented, and has a number of very unique pieces that you will spend a great deal of time enjoying. They include a tour of the foundry, demonstrating the casting process, so it is educational as well as... More

This was the scenic highlight of our trip! We first visited the Sculpture Garden in 1995, its opening. We went on a tour ($25.00) escorted by a senior staff member thoroughly familiar with the artist and each piece in this extensive walking tour. He was knowledgeable about the stone and bronze pieces, many standing well over 6' high. Beautiful. Don't... More

We went out to the sculpture garden- which is out of town in a fairly remote spot- where Houser had his studio. Many of his large pieces are displayed in the open air with the natural setting making the sculpture that much better. Very knowledgeable tour guide who is an artist herself. After the garden, there is a home converted... More

The tour starts with a short documentary that shows Allan Houser at work, accompanied by several interviews with his wife and sons. That creates the backdrop for an exceptional tour through the natural setting in which his sculptures are placed. I can't imagine seeing this amazing work anywhere else. He is an American treasure.

A must to see at the Hill Museum. It was a really lovely experience to see the sculptures. I really enjoyed my visit two times to this area.

you must be a fan of southwest art to appreciate this garden. Some of Allan Houser best art can be seen here, but be prepared for a drive from the plaza. It takes 30 minutes by car to get here, but it is worth it.

We enjoyed a guided tour by the curator of the gardens and gallery and the background on this fantastic artist and person. While off the beaten path, it was well worth the experience.
