I knew very little about Southwestern--especially New Mexican--art, and this museum was a great intro to the artists who influenced the region, and the world.

Good Museum - Wish More of their Paintings were on Display. Just saw the drawings exhibit recently. Join the museum and have invites to openings. The Museum hosts some great free music too.

Beautiful special exhibit on drawing, with works by Rembrandt, da Vinci, Picasso, Seurat, Cezanne, Rubens and many others. We were happy to be admitted for no additional charge as we belong to a museum that is part of the North American reciprocal museum program.

The collection we say was wonderful, watch for the special showings. The building itself is a treasure of Santa Fe style.

Half the pleasure is being in this historic building, built in the Spanish style with gorgeous courtyard. This is one of the few older museums in Santa Fe. It has a nice inexpensive gift shop. There were nice new exhibits on the upper floor.
