  • Great museum. Has a nice classic collection of artifacts. Nice modern paintings. On the outside they actually have a garden of things the Pueblos would use for clothing and they have art on a garden entrance close to the museum. Tje restaurants food smelled delicious
  • Wonderful museum with clean setup and follow. Also a blue star museum.
  • Considering how Santa Fe is an international art mecca the New Mexico Museum of Art isn't grand and doesn't have a vast collection. This museum however is quite nice and has several pieces which showcases New Mexican art. Worth a visit.
  • Closed for renovation till November 24th
  • New Mexican art museum nice gift shop and pretty court yard and building
