Very impressed with his museum! Easy to get around, clean and comfortable atmosphere. Exhits were organised and easy to understand. Was surprised that a lot of the exhibts were actually from New Mexico! Adult and kids alike enjoyed this museum.

An excellent museum with a lot of very informative displays. We also saw one of the shows in the Planetarium. Not overly expensive either.

We were in Albuquerque for just a few days and visited this museum. Very interesting displays and great information for adults and children alike. I would definitely visit it again if we are in Albuquerque again.
