  • NOTE!! CURRENTLY CLOSED DUE TO RENOVATIONS! We visited the first weekend in Aug 2019. We were able to see the back side and courtyard and the printing press room by buying admission at the New Mexico History Museum located behind the Palace. We enjoyed looking at the building outside and especially enjoyed seeing the Native American artisans selling their beautiful jewelry along the walk on the plaza.
  • This place is CLOSED until “early 2020.” It’s a wonderful place for young and old to enjoy and learn about early New Mexico.
