We saw an exhibition of wedding dresses from Macedonia, and Peruvian folk art. There is a lot to see, in a beautiful setting. Make sure to visit all the buildings in Museum Hill.

Yes, you have to travel a few miles to museum hill. One you get to this amazing complex of museums, your head will fill with a million thoughts of why art is the souls code.

Located on Museum Hill in Santa Fe, this museum has rightly earned its reputation of one of the world's finest collections of folk art. The collections are beautifully displayed and the descriptions well written and educational. Highly recommended for all ages.

So many interesting exhibits. It is amazing the ingenuity and creativity that lurks in our brains. From primitives to more aesthetic displays and always color. Color, color, color.

This is a great museum, with both temporary exhibitions, and permanent collections. We spent several hours browsing here, and I know we didn't see everything. Would love to make another visit the next time we're in Santa Fe.

Great way to spend an afternoon in Santa Fe. The Girard exhibit and audio tour was excellent. I also enjoyed the gift shop as it was an excellent place to pick up stocking stuffers.
