This museum is always a treat. The traveling shows are typically spectacular. One can spend hours here and still be sad to leave when the time comes. It is great for kids and people that might say, "museums are boring."

This museum appeals to adults and kids alike. My 10 year old grandson did not want to leave! We had lunch at the restaurant right there on site. It was a great way to spend the morning!

Plan to spend a couple of hours to see everything - or focus on a couple of areas. Very interesting.

Very hard to describe. There entire villages of wood and ceramic. There are frames and furniture. Clothing and accessories. Carpets and puppets. Truly, only the tip of a mesmerizing iceberg. Though I had visited Santa Fe many times, I had never come here until this...More

Permanent collection display can be enjoyed by people of all ages, while special exhibitions are quite intriguing, including the current show about the art from Peru.
