This enormous exhibition space, next to the 400-year-old Palace of the Governors, has collec­tions covering various as­pects of New Mexican history. It was constructed in 1610 as Spain’s seat of government, and served as the state’s history museum since 1909. In 1960 it was designated a Registered National Historic Landmark, and now the permanent and contemporary exhibitions cover various aspects of New Mexico history, including the early history of indigenous people in the area, Spanish colonization, the Mexican period, and the Santa Fe Trail.
