Eye Opening and Beautiful
Oct 2021
My two friends and I visited and were astounded by the wealth of information and exquisit examples. We even ran into and were able to speak with one of the owners so that was an added touch. The place is beautiful and there are thousands of pieces of turquoise to view from different countries.

The gift shop is wonderful. Of course we would have loved a guided tour and the cafe to be open, but we understood.

more videos please
Oct 2021
This experience would be 100% better if they had more videos and recordings of what you are seeing. There is just one video per room, and it is a simple introduction to that room. I would have appreciated a video of different focal points in the room and instructions on what to see and understand when looking at the piece. For example, the video could have said "On the left, note the...." The way it is now, it is a LOT of reading. Lots of informative plaques. And my group got kind of tired of reading, but really loved the videos and wanted more.

2-hour self guided tour through a truly unique and totally unexpected venue.
Sep 2021 • Friends
The castle itself is amazing before you even walk through the massive front doors. The displays - FANTASTIC! We met the owner, Joe Dan, who offered up terrific stories that truly bring the place to life. He wants you to share your stories, too.
The descriptions and QR code videos help make what’s in each case have meaning and relevance.
Definitely a place worth exploring.

A must see when you’re in Albuquerque!
My husband & I absolutely loved the Turquoise Museum! It was a fascinating place! So much info that was presented in a format that made you want to learn more! It interested me as a jewelry lover & my husband as a factual kind of guy. We stayed twice as long as the hour we had anticipated! The layout of the museum is very interesting & the contents are beautiful! Do yourself a favor & spend some time there!

Turquoise overload
Jul 2021
First thing I must say is that the owner and his family are wonderful, kind, open, and helpful folks. I was thoroughly charmed by them. Everything you can possibly want to know about turquoise can be found here. I really liked the interactive exhibits and how to tell the quality and authenticity of turquoise when shopping.

Intriguing !
Jun 2021
Although we didn't sign up for the guided tour, we ended up getting all sorts of adjunct info from the director who was on site. Every aspect was REALLY interesting !
The exhibits are set in an almost out of movie set style building, rather incongrous in slap dab the middle of Albuquerque, but there you go. It's perfect to showcase all the beautiful turquoise artefacts. There is everything you need to know in this museum about the gemstone, and plenty more, each exhibit clearly labelled and well lit.
It really is a lovely place to spend at least 2 hours and come away elucidated and well-informed.

Disappointing
May 2021
My mother and I were very excited to go inside this building. The staff were unwilling to talk about the building due to a "family dispute." Much of the building is not accessible to the public and the windows are covered by thick drapes. Disappointing, Definitely not worth the price.
