We wondered into this gallery and were amazed by what we saw - was a shop and free but more like an exhibition. We looked at every single photo and mesmerised by them all - JFKs assassination, Marilyn Monroe singing "Happy Birthday Mr President" etc etc etc etc. Loved it and if we had had chance would have gone back...

I have been visiting the Monroe for 15 years. It is simply the best photography gallery in Santa Fe. Sydney and Michelle Monroe are experts in their field and generous with their time. Their shows are both timely and timeless, and a joyful and sometimes emotional journey. They make you think about our times.

Monroe Gallery is one place I look forward to visiting when in Sante Fe. It is a chance to see outstanding photography. The current exhibit is also a history lesson with photographs of ground- breaking singers and entertainers. If you are local.. don't miss this exhibit..It closes January 31st.

The most amazing collection of 60's civil rights pictures alongside already iconic Ferguson photos makes From Selma To Ferguson a wonderful walk in or destination surprise. But the other photos in the shop by photographers like Eisenstadt are amazing .

Just around the corner from the Plaza, the Monroe Gallery is a top of the line photo gallery. The Monroes have achieved a superior historical collection of significant photojournalistic images. We were lucky to be there for The Long Road: From Selma to Ferguson exhibit - a shattering compilation of US racial confrontation. Don't miss this gem.

This small gallery near the Plaza should not be missed by anyone interested in the photodocumentation of the 20th & 21st Centuries. The shows are always outstanding, and the back room displays many of the iconic photo images we have all seen many times. The friendly staff will leave you alone or answer your questions. Plan on at least half... More

The Monroe Gallery is a huge photographic asset to Santa Fe and to the gallery community. Each show is compelling, well curated and moving. We find ourselves returning here again and again and have enjoyed purchasing photographs from nearly every show we've seen there.

Gallery has interesting, changing exhibits of mostly photojournalism--capturing different historical eras (such as the 60' Civil Rights Movement), events and people. Well worth a look.

Great photos from well known photographers. You get a lot of history and a look back at photographs which tell the story of our times. The exhibits change, but they have great photos in the back which are always available.
