Visiting Old Town, I parked behind the museum and thought I’d just go in for a few minutes. The main art exhibit was so interesting and diverse with its religious icons, abstract and representational paintings and sculptures. A few Buddha images created by Patrick Nagatani...More

We saw the American Jewelry in NM exhibit - very interesting and eclectic. Well done - very minimal and thought provoking. Great gift shop!

Really liked the art of New Mexico exhibit because it was different than I had expected. Different styles of painting. Also the art of politics exhibit very interesting and the sculpture garden lovely.

We went in on a whim and were so glad we did! The permanent exhibits are nicely varied, so you don't get overwhelmed with one thing. There's art, history, science, all in good measure, and well presented. The temporary exhibits are also of top quality.
