Albuquerque Museum

Art. History. People. In the heart of Old Town just off Route 66, Albuquerque Museum is a leading institution for art, history and culture in New Mexico and the American Southwest.

Whether you're a local seeking to be immersed in art or history, or a visitor wanting to experience Albuquerque's premier cultural institution, be sure to include a visit to Albuquerque Museum.

In addition to world-class exhibitions, the Museum offers a wide variety of programming including educational classes for children of all ages; live performances in its amphitheater; docent-guided tours in the Museum, its Sculpture Garden and Old Town; the Museum Store and the Museum's café, Slate at The Museum.

Albuquerque Museum also includes the historic Casa San Ysidro: The Gutiérrez-Minge House, located in the village of Corrales, just north of Albuquerque. This original Greek revival home, built by the Gutiérrez family in the 1870s,  includes Alan and Shirley Minge's recreation of a 19th century rancho, complete with a small family chapel, a central plazuela and an enclosed corral.
