  • Great exhibits on Santa Fe history, the Japanese internment camp, and currently hosting an interesting photography exhibition.
  • I wanted to see more native Americans & Spanish colonial artifacts. Good display but not enough considering all the history passed down to us New Mexicans. My son enjoyed the seen through old wagons. The new palace hard wood floors are beautiful. Native history, landing of the conquistadors, Native American resistance, revolt, Mexican independence, the Mexican-American War, America‚Äôs westward expansion, birth of the territory & becoming a state. In 1862 the confederate flag even hung for 3 weeks. Just goes to show what strong & powerful people we have defended from . Cheers
