Everyone who visits Santa Fe has got to visit this "one of a kind" museum. I've traveled around the world and still think this "gem" is a treasure for all to see, whether tourist or local. The gift shops are fun, fun, fun, too.

Whenever we go to Santa Fe, which is several times a year, we treat ourselves to this instructive and entertaining museum. The permanent collection lans heavily toward dioramas of village life, but the true eye-openers are the temporary exhibits. On our last visit, we were...More

I loved this museum. Could have spent much more time there, if travel schedule allowed. It's not "just" paintings on a wall; much--if not most--exhibits are objects. And so many!! Kids seemed to really enjoy it. Wish I'd gone there, and the next-door Native American...More
