This is a first rate museum. Wonderful stories and illustrations of life in Albuquerque. Great works of art. Terrific Visions of the Hispanic World was touring while we were there. It was an amazing exhibit.

There is so much to see and do here, you can't just stop in one time. Go to see the featured exhibit, and then see some of the smaller exhibits as well. The gift shop has some great selections.
