Inexpensive and accessible collection of native American art. We liked the size of the collection and it's historical range.

This museum is well worth the visit with interesting and informative displays. I particularly liked the arts portion of the museum depicting the various types of pottery and baskets that were and are being made in New Mexico.

The way they display the material is the best I have seen. The art and artifacts are wonderful, but they display them in a way that illustrates the cultures of Southwestern Indian peoples as it evolved over time, right to the present. Wonderful exhibits.

Small museum with a good sampling of original indian crafts such as baskets, blankets, pottery, etc. I was expecting a lot more artifacts but it was a good experience anyway.

This museum has art on the upper floor and a history section on the lower floor. There are lots of interesting video interviews with native Americans about various aspects of their lives and culture. Not to be missed on a Santa Fe trip. Be sure to visit Museum Hill with 4 museums in one complex. Give yourself at least half a day.
