Fodor's Review

This light-filled modern structure serves up a wealth of contemporary art, both from the museum's own Southwestern artists-centric collections and world-class touring shows. Additional exhibits display a collection of Spanish-colonial artifacts, the largest in the nation. The Common Ground galleries represent an important permanent collection of primarily 20th-century paintings, all by world-renowned artists with a New Mexico connection. The sculpture garden contains more than 50 contemporary works by Southwestern artists that include Glenna Goodacre, Michael Naranjo, and Luis Jiménez. Slate at the Museum, a casual eatery operated by Downtown's noted Slate Street Cafe, serves soups, salads, espresso drinks, desserts, and other tasty light fare.
