Beautiful and informative exhibits on the history,art and culture of the Pueblo, Navajo, Apache, and many other tribes of the Southwest. A must see for anyone visiting Santa Fe and part of "Museum Hill" where you can get a "Culture Pass" to many museums.

Wonderful displays of Native American art and culture. Exceptional collections. Give yourself plenty of time to enjoy this terrific museum and grounds. Much to see and absorb about the indigenous people of the Southwestern United States.
