What a treat to be able to see the beadwork exhibit. And the giant plastic bag hat from Peru! I always enjoy seeing the miniature displays of the many cultures. The gift shop was as much a museum as the exhibits. It was nice to...More

This museum is a little chaotic but amazing nonetheless. A great way to see the beautiful linkages between cultures while still celebrates their individual beauty.

An astonishingly large collection of folk art items from around the world. You won't see anywhere near everyone in a single visit. There is a permanent section and then also some smaller changing exhibits. There is a docent tour (perhaps only one a day, not...More

It is difficult to explain everything you feel when you walk in, but a great appreciation for the time it took to put this collection together is certainly one of them. Lots of wow factors throughout the museum! A MUST DO on your list!

A really great museum that is worth checking out. Right next to the Indian museum with a beautiful court yard in between. A must visit when in Santa Fe

If you're remotely interested in art and especially in folk art then this fantastic museum must be on your list. The collection is absolutely amazing and beautifully displayed. Spend a half-day...it takes that amount of time just to peruse everything. Fantastic place.

The Girard Wing contains thousands of pieces of art, toys, miniatures and textiles from all over the world. My only complaint is the way the display cases are numbered. As you enter the gallery you need to pick up a book to provide explanation of...More
