About the Museum:
We hope you will enjoy our unique position—in the heart of historic Old Town and just across the street from the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Explora, the Children's Science Museum as well as our close proximity to many other memorable attractions.That is perhaps why we are an enjoyable experience for so many visitors each year: one-third of our guests are nonresidents.

There is great recognition and support for art in our community. It also means we are able to offer a wide range of attractions and programs with only modest charge to the public. If there is anything we can do to help you, please ask.
