I was amazed at the quality of the art displayed from various Pueblo areas. Expect to spend at least two hours visiting the displays. The gift shop has items for every age group.

Mix of old, such as excellent pottery exhibit, plus new art by Native Americans. Nice exhibits, small museum. Complementary to Wheelwright. Excellent gift shop. Part of the Santa Fe museum group.

The museum appears to cater to contemporary Indian art. We were hoping for more displays of historical pieces. The gallery itself is well laid out and the works are well displayed. Just be aware that the focus appears to be contemporary art.
