You will be drawn in by the feel of the Southwest territory as you stroll around and explore the rich history and art of Albuquerque. Political and military life of past days are remembered in interpretive displays. More than 400 years of religion, folk art and culture are showcased. Permanent displays and traveling exhibits are offered at no charge. A sculpture garden and gift shop are also on site. Parking is free. The City of Albuquerque Cultural Services Department maintains this beautiful, old museum.
The historical, permanent exhibit section of the Albuquerque Museum of History and Art, provides an excellent, compacted history of the area dating back to the ancient Anasazis. I always recommend that anyone coming to Albuquerque for the first time, take in this museum first. Adjacent to our historic Old Town area. (Rio Grande Blvd. @ Mountain Road), Other, diverse museums are also nearby. The "Art" section is "intended" to feature New Mexican artists primarily, and adds a colorful "flavor" to the museum. Definitely worth an hour's stroll.
Pretty good presentation of the history of Albuquerque and occasional excellent traveling exhibits -- but, other than that, the Albuquerque Museum seems to be a typical small city space that features little known local artists and a mix of obscure wanna be avant garde pieces -- combined with a very good representation of New Mexico 20th century art and occasional bits and pieces of excellence. It's catch as catch can -- probably worth a visit unless your other choice is the museums in Santa Fe.
Lighting is often problemmatic and spectator flow can be a downright traffic jam. On an off day, the visit can be quite pleasant.
When you walk through the doors of this Old Town museum and shop, you may find yourself warily glancing behind
the door. But there are no snakes slithering about the store, their crawl space is in the back room ...
