Beautiful and informative exhibits on the history,art and culture of the Pueblo, Navajo, Apache, and many other tribes of the Southwest. A must see for anyone visiting Santa Fe and part of "Museum Hill" where you can get a "Culture Pass" to many museums.

Wonderful displays of Native American art and culture. Exceptional collections. Give yourself plenty of time to enjoy this terrific museum and grounds. Much to see and absorb about the indigenous people of the Southwestern United States.

On "Museum Hill", the setting is magnificent. The collection of historical artifacts and Pueblo pottery is very nice. Be sure to watch the entire video of Maria Martinez, noted potter of the San Ildefonso Pueblo.

This is a excellent museum to visit, the exhibits are laid out very well even though some of the lighting was very dim in some areas. Loved the exhibition with the Lindburg's picture's of the Indian ruins in 1929 and the present pictures of them. Great museum!

Part of the extensive campus on Museum Hill, southeast of downtown, this museum has an excellent central exhibit on the history of regional tribes. That may be too detailed for some visitors, but the smaller galleries have interesting exhibits, including a current one that compares modern photographs of ancient pueblo sites with those taken by Charles Lindbergh in 1929.

Both the museum and the museum shop can give you a glimpse into the past as well as the current direction of native art, especially Zuni fetishes. The shop rivals the best galleries in town and gives a discount to members. The museum itself always has an interesting current show

On a recent docent trip to Santa Fe we visited this wonderful museum and had a great tour by a local docent. She recommended a children's book, which was sold in their shop and we even got the member discount.

Early afternoon in late March and not many visitors as we toured this amazing museum of art and culture. Beautiful and thought-provoking paintings and sculptures as well as artifacts from long ago. Senior discount available.
