Museums of New Mexico

Lonely Planet review

This is a collection of four very different museums – two of them on Museum Hill and two on the Plaza – which also offers seminars, musical events and a variety of guided tours with historic or artistic focuses, many designed for children. Both the Palace of the Governors and the New Mexico Museum of Art, the two located on the Plaza, are free on Friday from 5pm to 8pm. All the museums have fabulous gift shops.
