The Albuquerque Museum of Art and History
Albuquerque, NM

About the Museum:
We hope you will enjoy our unique position—in the heart of historic Old Town and just across the street from the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Explora, the Children's Science Museum as well as our close proximity to many other memorable attractions.That is perhaps why we are an enjoyable experience for so many visitors each year: one-third of our guests are nonresidents.
