We really enjoyed the Museum of Art, despite half of it being closed for a new installment. The historical perspective was very interesting and we appreciated the varied types of pieces. Well worth the visit!

We have visited this museum before, and while it's never been great, this time was just awful. I understand that art is subjective, but in a community filled with incredible artistic talent, this is just simply a slap in the face to anyone wanting to see the height of the art offerings in Santa Fe. I am sorry, but with all the remarkable painting and sculpture in the galleries, it's insulting to expect people to appreciate rhinestone-covered matchbox toys and wrenches hung on plywood. Additionally, a good portion of the gallery was closed; we can only hope that the pieces soon to be displayed there will be better than the rest of the museum.

A well-rounded collection of New Mexico art, dating back 14,000 years to the present. Docent tour was interesting - our docent really knew her stuff. Just wish it were larger - seems like the space might be managed more efficiently to squeeze in a few more pieces.

A tourist or newcomer to Santa Fe leaves this museum with a solid base in the xchools and trends of the regional art idioms. Wonderful special events as well.
