  • First rate introduction to the prehistoric archaeology of New Mexico as seen from the perspective of the UNM researchers. However there is no mention of the Sandia Cave controversy (see Douglas Preston in The New Yorker). In addition there is a Chinese porcelain exhibition. The museum also has a temporary exhibit on English attempts beginning in the late 1700s to produce Chinese quality porcelain.
  • I love the Mimbres (and many other) pots on display, and enjoyed both the permanent and several temporary exhibits. Also, it's important to support UNM's strong anthropology faculty/department/program through their work with this museum!
  • Learn your history here
  • Free admission, great exhibits, and a new temporary exhibition occurs each year
  • Disappointed there wasn't more unique artifacts on display
