Albuquerque Museums

The Albuquerque Museum located in Old Town is home to the largest collection of Spanish Colonial artifacts in the United States. The museum also features local, national and international art work.

Across the street from the Albuquerque Museum is the New Mexico Museum of Natural History. Greeted at the door by an 85 foot brontosaurus, visitors enter to find a bubbling volcano, a frigid Ice Age cave, and dinosaurs. Besides the many exhibits relating to prehistoric creatures, is the exciting Dynamax Theater.

Not far from Old Town is the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center, owned and operated by the 19 Pueblo tribes of New Mexico. There are individual displays from each pueblo. The lower level is devoted to the history of the American Indian, highlighted by paintings, sculpture, pottery, and jewelry.

Off Rio Grande Boulevard and Candelaria on the "bosque" is the Rio Grande Nature Center State Park. It is home to birds--year-round and migratory, as well as other native wildlife.

The University Art Museum is located in the Fine Arts Building on the University of New Mexico campus. It displays contemporary and historical art and houses the state's largest collection of fine-art including Old Masters.

The Maxwell Museum of Anthropology is also on the University of New Mexico campus. It has two permanent galleries (the "Ancestors" exhibit and the "People of the Southwest").

The Albuquerque Children's Museum features hands-on fun for kids. Children will be entertained with bubbles, puppet theater, dress-up area, science demonstrations, workshops and more.

EXPLORA Science Center is a great place for kids to be educated about science and technology with interactive, hands-on science exhibits and live demonstrations about air pressure, fluids, sound, motion, lights, electricity, health and the human body.

The National Atomic Museum, located at Kirtland Air Force Base, displays a full-scale
panoramic time line of authentic atomic age weaponry and technologies.
