Casa San Ysidro

Information about Casa San Yisdro

Inside the adobe walls at Casa San Ysidro you'll discover furnishings, tools and art used when New Mexicans lived on a remote frontier. Now considered one of the world's most comprehensive collections of New Mexican art and furnishings, Casa San Ysidro shows how ordinary people created extraordinary things.

The c. 1875 home, restored and expanded by Dr. Ward Alan and Shirley Minge, combines traditional building techniques and architectural features that evoke New Mexico's Spanish Colonial past. Located in the farming village of Corrales, just north of Albuquerque, the museum is listed on the State Register of Cultural Properties and El Camino Real de Tierra Adentro National Historic Trail.

Personalized, guided tours and special programs reveal how family, faith, and farms have endured through the centuries in New Mexico. Throughout the year special programs and event days expand the opportunity for you to take a glimpse at New Mexico's unique heritage in this unequalled southwestern treasure.
