Excellent New Mexico Art on display with changing exhibits. This is one of the four museums with unlimited admission included in the four day twenty dollar ticket. Take the free docent tour at 2PM.

The exterior of this building is art in and of itself. Then, after entering you go into a courtyard which is simply beautiful and peaceful. In the courtyard is wonderful art on the walls, a central waterscape, and restrooms. There are several galleries within the museum, and the art ranges from traditional to modern, but all focusing on New Mexico. On the day I visited, one major gallery upstairs was not open. Photography is allowed providing you do not use flash. There are several art galleries in Santa Fe, and I would list this one as one definitely worth seeing.

I loved this museum and all the beauty on display. Well worth a visit. They have a superb and varied collection of art which should satisfy everybody in one way or another. Here's my story: http://pettprojects.com/santafe.html

I went to the museum on a FREE Friday evening when there was an exhibition opening attended by both locals and tourists alike. I really enjoyed the new exhibition "It's About Time: 14,000 Years of Art in New Mexico"--it told the history of the New Mexico through the lens of art. I wished other areas of the museum devoted more space to painters and groups who settled in the area. Lovely reception for the opening. Beautiful building.

I recently brought a group of art appreciators to Santa FE. Anne, our docent gave us an amazing tour of the local downtown architecture and public art. Then she finished up with a fabulous tour of the permanent exhibits at the museum plus a sneak peak of the just opening Waterscapes exhibit. Anne is so knowledgeable about both the arts & architecture of new mexico and she has a great attitude and love of sharing New Mexico with others. I highly recommend the museum as a way to learn about the fine arts tradition in New Mexico!
