  • This was an unexpected wonderful surprise. We found the link to this place through the Albuquerque museum website and decided to give it a try. It's an authentic old house turned into a museum and It's so well kept and beautiful and interesting. So far one of the best places we've visited. The people there were wonderful and they even gave us a private tour. A very competent and kind lady shoved us the place and explained everything about new mexico and the house and she really made feel a part if that period. I cannot recommend it enough. Definitely worth the while for a ridiculously cheap price. Wonderful.
  • Very good tour guide! Excellent tour helper. Fascinating place to visit with very many different authentic items. It really captures a completely different time. Very well done
  • This is a very quaint little museum that displays a number of artifacts from early Mexican American culture. The Casa was built in the 1970's and is a replica of a ranch house from over a hundred years ago from traditional adobe. It's a very interesting place to visit.
  • Don't let the exterior size fool you. The Casa is expansive once you get through the door. The docent was very knowledgeable about the history of the structure, the benefactor abd the collected artifacts housed in the Casa. The tour is $6 and worth it. Workshops and programs are held regularly about life in the 19th century in New Mexico, particularly Corales. A nice collection of religious folk art throughout the Casa.
  • Casa San Ysidro is Albuquerque Museum's little Jewel located in the Village of Corrales, New Mexico.Built on land originally owned by the Gutierrez family as a land grant, the home was built around 1868 and was lived by descendants of the original family until it was purchased in the 1950s by a University of New Mexico professor who spent decades expanding it and filling it with artifacts obtained from areas throughout New Mexico. The Docent led tour is about $6 and is a bargain at twice the price. This is a little Museum that can be toured more than once as each docent may put their own spin on it. The Museum also sponsors two festivals a year, a Heritage Day in May and a Harvest Festival in late September or early October. The Festivals feature many artisans, musicians and storytellers as well as Churro sheep and donkeys loaded with packs, blacksmiths, wool spinning and weaving and more. Go to the Albuquerque Museum website to see other activities such as second Saturday.
