University of New Mexico

Lonely Planet review

There are 8 museums and galleries, along with loads of public art, packed onto the grounds of UNM. This small but peaceful campus is also home to a performing arts center and the Tamarind Institute , which helped save the art of lithography from extinction in the 1960s and '70s. The Maxwell Museum of Anthropology is one of the best of its kind in the country. Visit the UNM Welcome Center for information and maps.
