Two ongoing exhibits were exceptional! Films Made in New Mexico and an Albuquerque exhibit were extremely well curated and interesting. The permanent collection is good and well displayed. The sculpture garden is exceptional!

There was a Hollywood exhibit there at the time we were visiting. Cannot believe how many movies have been made in the area. Other interesting exhibit was the tuberculitis one. All in all, a good museum.

A small art museum that includes local history, it has a nice variety of art and a reasonable admission at $4. A great stop if you are in the area, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to see it. The pay parking lot...More
