Here you can explore four world-class museums, and enjoy a peaceful setting amid great views. Plan on an entire day to partake of the art, history, and culture of the Native American Southwest, the Spanish colonial past, and folk traditions from around the world at Museum of Indian Arts & Culture, Museum of International Folk Art, Wheelwright Museum of the American Indian and Museum of Spanish Colonial Art. The best spot for kids is the International Folk Art Museum. There's plenty of parking and great spots to pause outdoors and admire the larger-than-life sculptures on the property.
Just a Few Sees & Dos
Weldon's Museum Hill Cafe: A must for the museum weary! Open for lunch Tuesday through Sunday. Enjoy the fresh menu, and a great selection of wine and beer, while taking in the views from the patio.
Santa Fe Botanical Gardens: Meander the Gardens, an accessible landscape of traditional and native plants nestled in a piñon-juniper woodland. Seasonally offers outdoor showcases of music (Sunset Concert Series) and theatrical performances (Shakespeare in the Garden).
Museum Shops: Perusing art is marvelous, but consider bringing home a souvenir from your museum visits for an extra special memory. Make some time to shop at the Museum of International Folk Art Shop, the Colleen Cloney Duncan Museum Shop at the Museum of Indian Arts & Culture, the Case Trading Post at the Wheelwright Museum of the American Indian.
