I've visited Santa Fe for decades when the tiny history museum was crammed into the remarkable Palace of the Governors (circa 1600s and upwards), so the last few years, when we had a bona fide history museum built adjacent to the Palace, have made it much easier for people to learn the background of remarkable Santa Fe. Well thought out, encompassing significant events, very 21st century, don't (whatever you do!) JUST enjoy the actual museum - walk across a Courtyard and enter the roughly 400-year-old Palace, which also has museum exhibits but the actual smell and resonance of the past. Check out both the museum shop and the lovely bookstore as you go.
