I found a calming afternoon here and a new found respect for this pioneering woman and artist. This lovely little gem is located within walking distance to the Plaza, and is comprised of 5-6 small rooms. Nominal admission fees, free lockers/coat storage, clean bathrooms, friendly service, and highly knowledgeable security guards. No parking onsite, so be prepared to pay and walk. I have never been an avid fan of her work, but being able to view her collections up close and in the land that she loved so (rather than on a NY gallery wall), I quickly gained a new appreciation. The short, introductory video on her life should not be missed. Don't expect to see all her most iconic, commercialized works, but you will view and appreciate her little known pieces. I particularly loved her personal artifacts scattered throughout the museum (clothing, camping gear, sketchbooks, and brushes) which gave a true sense of who she was and helps the museum-goer make a personal connection to the artist.

We really liked the collection and the extensive information about the artist. Our visit was definitely enhanced by a very knowledgable and friendly Docent who took the time to answer all of our questions.

Be certain to watch the two short films before viewing the art. It will help you understand why she painted what she did, and esp. it will help you understand her connection to New Mexico.

I really enjoyed the exhibit, particularly the camping equipment and sketches and photographs depicting her life - a very interesting life story!

This museum is fascinating. A short video tour explains her life history at the beginning, which you must watch to understand what you're about to see. Her art is gorgeous, bought several mementos at the gift shop, and spent a lovely afternoon adoring the talent of Georgia O'Keefe.
