This was a wonderful museum, everything is beautiful and well presented. You wouldn't believe how many historical items they have there! A must see.
Get a chance to watch an old time movie filmed here. Great New Mexico artifacts. Great, great paraphanelia you could swear you are in the Rodeo Hall of Fame with more wagons and saddles. #1 pick for first time visitors to Sante Fe.
My mom and I visited this museum as part of her 74th birthday trip. We were really looking forward to this museum to learn about the history of all the people in the area, but particularly the native people.

This was a fabulous opportunity to learn things about the history of the development of New Mexico. So much to see! Need to allow several hours to see it all, but it's well worth it!
This museum has a great permanent exhibit on the history of New Mexico. It always has at least one excellent temporary exhibit. The large gift shop has a good selection of art, books and jewelry.
We love history, and New Mexico History Museum did not disappoint. The museum is okay. It's the tour guide that made the difference between just average and a most memorable visit.

We always enjoy visiting history museums to learn about the history and culture of the location we are visiting. I strongly recommend the New Mexico History Museum. They have very interesting exhibits containing artifacts dating back to Pre-Columbian times. Excellent way to learn about New Mexican Culture!
This is a great place to bring family and kids. It takes about 2 hours to go though with reading everything and doing the activities. I thought it was really fun a lot of hands on things to do and audio. The staff is very nice and helpful with any questions as well. Great history of the West!!!
