|About these ratings|
For an in-depth look at Albuquerque's rich cultural heritage, take a few hours to explore the Albuquerque Museum of Art and History. Sitting on the eastern edge of Old Town, this space—often referred to simply as the Albuquerque Museum—is home to an impressive collection of historic artifacts detailing the city's past; some of the more notable objects include a 19th-century chapel and armor used by the Spanish conquistadors. The museum also features artwork by renowned local artists such as Georgia O'Keeffe and Peter Hurd.
Recent travelers praise this museum for its well-stocked permanent collection, but they also recommend spending some time in the temporary exhibit. "Exhibits are always changing, and they bring in truly world class exhibits that would be more common in much larger cities," writes one TripAdvisor user.
The Albuquerque Museum of Art and History is open Tuesday through Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. General admission is $4 for adults, and discounts are available for seniors and children. Visit the museum's website for more information.
