Museo de las Americas


This small museum in the heart of the Santa Fe Arts District has innovative exhibits by Latin American and Latino artists. Shows range from rare collections of colonial artifacts to cutting-edge performance art. Programs celebrating the diversity of Latino culture are also regularly offered. The museum opens its doors for the city-wide First Friday event too.
