I have been here many times in the past but this was the first time since the museum expanded. They now have a large collection of jewelry on continuous display. Lighting and displays were very well done. This is a small place to visit

Loved this museum. Well laid out with just the right amount of exhibits. Good information given on each exhibit. A really good museum shop - although a little pricey. Well worth a visit

My wife and I were happy to spend the day at the Museum. The presentation is spectacular, the setting is a wonder. The setting has a unique presentation of a restaurant with very tasty cuisine.

This museum offers an in-depth view of New Mexican native culture and history. It also features several temporary galleries and a gift shop with primarily native-made art. Compared to other native history museums, the content is above average.
