Unfortunately, the tour I participated in did not allow anywhere near the time it would take to truly comprehend this incredible collection. If you are a detailed crafter, plan on an afternoon to absorb everything.

The base museum of folk art was a bit overwhelming, I have to say. The room is packed with different cultures' folk art (dolls, town set ups, etc). Be sure to pick up a guide (on the wall outside of the main room) before you...More

Most museums in the world focus on "fine art." However, most art in the world is "folk art." Worth the trip! Give yourself a couple hours to enjoy. Come with an open mind and you will be richly rewarded.

This is a 'don't miss' attraction! An extraordinary collection unlike anything we've ever seen. It shares a location with four other museums, plus a terrific restaurant. This could be, as it was for us, an entire day.

Hi - There is some misunderstanding, the exhibition Flamenco: From Spain to New Mexico is open through September 10, 2017. Thank you for visiting and reviewing the Museum of International Folk Art!
