Reviewed March 7, 2013

Located on Museum Hill in Santa Fe, this museum is treasure trove for all ages. An uplifting, idea-filled place with little surprises around every corner. This is a museum that will take more time than you would ever imagine. Have fun.

The museum is definitely worth visiting. Wonderful exhibits, the museum offers something for everyone including children. I enjoyed the interactive installations. It is located on the Museum Hill and there is wonderful unobstructed views to the mountains around. The Museum cafe offers good selection of easy meals and there was life music (guitar player) during my visit. If you have 2-3 hrs to spare, make this part of your agenda, you will like it!

“A cultural gem”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

Santa Fe's gem. Not too large, not too small, just right for a visit when you have a few hours. Great variety and not overwhelming. Great location so do stop by.

“Truly eye worthy!”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Folk Art is a truly American way of telling our story. This museum makes it mark on the New Mexican traditions. It incorporates both the Spanish, Indian and Anglo influences of society. The Museum is in a beautiful setting with natural plants all around.
