I stopped here at the end of a 12-day Santa Fe and Taos vacation. I had already spent dozens of hours in art galleries and museums on the trip, and this museum served as a summary of all I had seen.

I love the sculpture gardens and the St Francis auditorium architecture. Our docent told us interesting stories about the history of the museum, which will be 100 years old in 2017! There were several different kinds of exhibits up when we were there.

A wonderful museum that focuses on New Mexico artists. We joined the guided tour through the collection and didn't regret it. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and was an artist in his own right. A must see in Santa Fe.

This museum is for those who want New Mexican fine art, not crafts. The museum is in a beautiful building; the collection is smallish but quite nice. We liked the fact that it wasn't overwhelming large and complex.

As an artist myself, I just loved this museum (as did my children). I loved seeing all of the artwork and it was tastefully displayed. There wasn't so much that it was overwhelming. Just the right size to hold the kid's attention. Highly recommend.

Like the Georgia O' Keefe museum, the New Mexico Museum of Art is also outstanding. It is an excellent complement to the O' Keefe museum.

Acknowledging that part of the museum was closed to prepare a new exhibit, there was very little to see here, and only one Georgia O'Keefe piece on display. We were done in 15 minutes.
