    The cathedral sits at the end of the Main Street running through historic Santa Fe. It is almost as if it beckons you to come in. Once in you take in the beautiful wood carving and stained glass windows. The sad part of our visit is others did not respect that it was still a house of prayer and worship. Their individual conversations disrupted the peace that is usually found.

    We've been here more times than can be remembered (used to live in SF) and we never miss it. It's a great place for relaxing, eating, shopping, etc. Sit on a bench in the shade and people watch or stroll down the Palace of the Governors to see all the wares for sale by Native American artisans. There's something for everyone.

    We love visiting Kay Contemporary Fine Art. All of the staff is extremely friendly & helpful. A truly beautiful curated gallery with a stunning sculpture garden in the back.

    The International Folk Museum is amazing! I loved all the miniatures, dolls, and puppets from all the different countries. I just marveled at the tiny details. There was a miniature bullfight scene and it was so intricate. Another scene I loved was a religious procession from a church and a kitchen in a Mexican Hacienda. Just a million little details. My husband and I spent two hours looking at just this wing of the museum. I would love to return someday to see the other parts of the museum.

    The story behind the miracle staircase just adds to its beauty. Where people come to see the staircase make sure you turn around and check out the altar as well. The wood and plaster altar is painted to look like marble and was imported from Italy.

    This opera is magical! It starts with a lecture by a funny lecturer about the opera one is about to see. This is a not to be missed event. Then, for those who planned it, a "tail gate party" in the parking lot. Most people have this as a quite formal event, with candelabras and table cloths on the tables. Then the opera itself is wonderful, with being part outdoor with a view of the mountains in the background. The facility attracts top notch singers and the orchestra is always great. We live in Santa Fe, and go every year! Not to be missed!

    Be sure to get your tickets in advance. I booked mine two months before my trip. When I arrived there were folks standing around outside who had traveled to Santa Fe and were unable to get tickets.

    Good visit to learn about the state we visited on this vacation. Bonus getting to see the Palace of the Governors . Buy a culture pass if you’re visiting other museums in state and save money.

    Had not thought to visit here but our innkeeper at El Farolito told us that the Capitol has one of the best art collections in Santa Fe. It was well worth the visit!!

    It sounds like an art museum, but is also history, and archaeology. Learn about differences in people from different parts of NM and see how some of their things are created.

    First, we made the mistake of not really researching this, just heard about it and went. That said, had a fun time and spent 90 minutes walking around. Others had obviously researched it and I think there's some type of "game" where you are looking for clues and trying to solve something.

    If you don't want to do that, it's still cool to just walk around and check it out. It's a "house" within a warehouse that has hidden portals to cool areas. Most are fairly obvious or you'll just follow people (e.g. you climb into the dryer and slide down into another area). Kind of a trippy experience. Pretty enjoyable for any age.

    This is my favorite gallery in town in every season but the winter. The gallery has a good selection of art ranging from native american to contemporary. The staff is so happy to offer information and they are good with teens to point out various things about the artwork and give some interesting back history on the pieces. This place is a hidden gem in town.

    I liked everything about this church: its history, as the "oldest church in the U.S.," its small size/compactness, the artwork, its simplicity, the wood beams, and more. Probably, my favorite church in Santa Fe.

    We had part of a day to fill so stopped in. It is a replica of a Spanish settlement. The in costume employees were very informative and knew a lot about the history of the area. It is a reasonably priced family destination. The live sheep and goats were fun to see and they were baking fresh bread for sampling.

    Lots of cozy little spaces to sit quietly and observe the local fauna. There’s a short loop available to hike which is simple enough for children to enjoy. It’s definitely worth seeking out!
