Museums and Galleries in New Mexico

From classic to contemporary, folk art to fine art

You will find a wide variety of art galleries and museums in New Mexico showcasing art from every era, style and aesthetic. There’s no better spot than Santa Fe to begin your tour of galleries and museums in New Mexico. Within a few mile radius, you can take in classic works from Georgia O’Keeffe and Gustave Baumann, traveling exhibitions from famous institutions such as the New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York, contemporary offerings at SITE Santa Fe, and folk art from around New Mexico and the world at the International Museum of Folk Art. And that’s just the beginning.

More than 100 galleries up and down Santa Fe’s Canyon Road display a dazzling array of works from every style and era. Housed in 250-year-old adobes and nestled amidst open-air sculpture gardens and delightful restaurants, coffee houses and bistros, it’s easy to while away a day (or more) admiring both the art and the picturesque setting.
