There was very little by way way of indian arts (like weaving, bead, metal jewellery, dolls, weaponry etc). The historical aspects were also not highlighted. The museum is organized more like a commentary rather than a typical museum. The best part seems to be the section about clay pots and the video on how they are made- no wonder why... More

The Museum of Indian Arts and Culture was my favorite on "Museum Hill, " but we enjoyed others too. The outdoor bronze sculptures were amazing and the videos of pottery making were fascinating.

I found my visit to be isinteresting and, indeed, moving. It is dedicated mainly but not exclusively to the Pueblo Indians. There are a number of dramatic sculptures outside. I first went specifically to see the one-person exhibition of the work of David P. Bradley, a Native American artist originally from Minnesota. The museum shop is excellent. The museum is... More

This museum has a decent collection and interesting temporary exhibits. There are actually 3 museums all atop what is known as "Museum Hill". The Cafe is first rate. Delicious food, worth a drive up the hill.

If you have any interest in the Pueblo Indians, do not miss this fantastic museum! It is on Museum Hill. We were fortunate to be early on a Sunday, and had a docent tour just for us. The various exhibits are just so excellent, from ancient to more modern. I loved the photography exhibit, with side-by-side photos of landscapes and... More

There's so much to learn about Native American culture in New Mexico that this is like a general introduction to the pueblo people in the present and with a view of their past.

This museum, located on Museum Hill in Santa Fe offers a time trip through Native American culture, and includes arts and crafts in their displays. An easy walk inside the museum highlights different eras in cultural like here in New Mexico. Restaurant in Museum Hill complex serves very tasty lunches at feasible prices.
