“deceptively enormous”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2011

This place didn't look that big on the outside, but like the tardis, when you puruse the art inside it just seems to go on forever. It was a great selection of contemporary art of all kinds, and a lovely sculpture garden out back.

“Small but very well done with lovely local architecture”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2011

Not a lot here but well worth an hour if only to see the classic Santa Fe building style. The artwork is well presented. There's the odd O'Keefe and some good offerings by local artists. Nothing to rave about but it's done with loving care and good local support.

“Not to be missed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2011

Even if you only go for the architecture, it's worth it. Even just the courtyard! But the shows it contained were each worth the price of admission (not bad at $9). There was a good balance of traditional and contemporary artwork and the work was displayed very well. It was a very enjoyable experience.

“Great museum with quality exhibits”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2011

To learn more about artisans and works of the Land of Enchantment, one only has to check out this unique museum. Purchase a day pass to attend all participating museums to enjoy even more art works for a better overall price.

“Exposure to local artists”

Nice variety of classic and contemporary artists who either are from NM or whose works are relevant to the state. Includes a few classics form O'Keefe!
