We were very impressed by the whole museum complex on Museum Hill. The exhibits here were very well presented and labelled. We just had a bit of trouble knowing the sequence we should be visiting them. The guide wasn't as clear as it could have been and at the end we were unsure if we had seen everything or missed out any of the displays. Great gift shop with a good selection of interesting books

Loved the Indian School video & the Pottery video. Really gave you a clearer picture of both. Wanted to get to the Indian Blanket exhibit but didn't have enough time. So much to see. Will definitly be going back!!!

Well presented collection with a mix of artifacts and art, old and new. Informative short films. This is a very important museum for the presentation and preservation of the Indian Culture. Well done Santa Fe!!!!

The major exhibit was a time line of the development of Indian culture in the Southwest. Very well done. The black pottery video alone was worth the price of admission.
