The Museum offers an array of exhibits for all ages. ”La Casa Delgado” or “The Delgado Room” recreates the quarters of Second In Command officer Manuel Delgado. Each item in the room was mentioned in his will, with all the details to let you step back into time, more than 400 years ago.
In the “Costume Corner,” children may don replicas of traditional Spanish Colonial and other local historical outfits typical for the peak of the Spanish Colonial era. Many more salons take you through time and across continents to paint the rich story of the arrival and evolution of the Spanish Colonial Arts in New Mexico.
Rotating exhibits, including national traveling shows insure you will always encounter something nuevo at the Museum.
Be sure to visit Tesoros, the Museum Shop for a rare opportunity to see affordable original work by our Spanish Market artists year round as well as other creative items with a local flavor or preview a selection of items now online.
