|About these ratings|
Of all the museums that make up the New Mexico History Museum group, this one is probably the most unique. Southwestern art is definitely represented, but the Museum of International Folk Art also showcases more than 100,000 objects and has interesting displays representing daily life in societies all over the globe. Don't worry about boring your kids on museum day: the large collection of toys from around the world is sure to spark their interest.
Located a few miles south of the Santa Fe Plaza on Museum Hill, the Museum of International Folk Art is open Tuesday through Sunday (and every day during the summer) from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. During the summer, admission is free on Friday nights from 5 to 8 p.m. Guided tours are available.
