Housed in a building inspired by local pueblo-style architecture, New Mexico Museum of Art places special focus on displaying works from local artists or those with ties to the region and state. Stop by the state-run museum and explore its extensive collection of nearly 20,000 different pieces. Don't miss different exhibitions focused on colonial-era and Native American art. Join a guided tour, led by a museum docent and included in the cost of admission, to learn more about specific themes, techniques, and historical aspects related to the works within. Alternatively, you can opt for a museum-led walking tour of artwork throughout the city's downtown section. Before you visit Santa Fe, use our trip planner to discover what you can do and see there.
New Mexico Museum of Art reviews
The museum has a typical adobe exterior. Inside there is a variety of art genres. My favorite part was the beautiful courtyard. more »
While not necessarily a featured museum in various guides, it is worth at least an hour of your time. This museum was included in our combo tickets for Santa Fe Museums. We spent about 2-1/2 hours... more »
We visited 8/3/19 in late afternoon and it was very quiet. Beautiful art and sculptures. Lovely courtyard and gardens. Very interesting display on the history of Lake Mead which we found very informative and thought provoking. As we left patrons were arriving for a chamber music event. Highly recommend this museum.
It's always fun to go to museums and other places and see their collections. This one is no exception. It is a must stop and see place. I hope you enjoy it.
