Very interesting and beautiful. The exhibits are great and have wonderful explanations. The artifacts are unique. I can not see this museum too many times.
This was an interesting museum to visit after the Museum of International Folk Art. With its focus on NM Indian art you have a much better appreciation of the quality of the textile and pottery quality that existed 1000 years ago in this area.
This is a great museum. It's only $6 for NM residents on most days, but free to NM residents on Sundays, and free to NM seniors on Wednesdays. There are about eight different display rooms.

Our hosts at the B&B we were staying at recommended this museum.

I hope I have the right museum, someone wrote that it was opposite the cathedral. I believe this is the one in the plaza with Wheelwright and Folk Art museums nearby. It's not a particularly extensive museum, but as part of the museum pass, it was good value. Items were beautifully displayed and I enjoyed the pottery exhibit and videos.... More

We never quite figured out the organization of this museum. The collections are a mish mash of contemporary and ancient objects. The route through the exhibits was not clear and we ended up doubling back several times. Being in the heart of the Southwest we expected a better museum experience.
