A must visit museum. The exhibitions range from photographs, artist's retrospective to historical comentaries. Open spectrum of ideas and art.

We visited the 516 Arts exhibition while in Albuquerque & found it intriguing & interesting. There was some most avante' guard & interesting work there. the students & artists are really making a sincere effort & need all the help they can get. What a wonderful venue within the city to visit while awaiting the train.

Loved it! Went on a Sunday a.m. because there is no admission fee before 1:00 p.m. The museum is wonderful - not too big but lots of local art and history about Albuquerque. Very entertaining and information. Beautiful building and sculptures outside too.

Not much to see here. A small handful of O'Keeffes, a Picasso sketch, a bunch of boring Warhol photos and some okay paintings. Worth the price of admission - free. Tip: There is a donation box; wait till the end of your visit before deciding what was worth to you.

The university of New Mexico Art museum is very disappointing for all the artists that have gone through UNM. I have to say they have a fabulous collection but you rarely get to see it here. The museum is a small collection of rooms in the Popejoy Auditorium Building, very akward to navigate through! They do have good shows here... More
