107 W. Palace Ave., Santa Fe, NM 87501, United States

The definitive compendium of New Mexican art through the ages, the MFA’s collection occupies a rambling 1917 building that also ranks among the state's most elegant examples of Pueblo Revival architecture (Santa Fe's ubiquitous and distinctive building style, characterized by thick adobe walls, flat roofs, and protruding wooden roof beams). Highlights from the 23,000-piece collection include works by every iconic artist who has spent time in the state—and there have been many, including Ansel Adams, Richard Diebenkorn, Robert Henri, Agnes Martin, and Alfred Stieglitz.

 

Tip: Watch for upcoming exhibits, which are often outstanding. Notable recent shows have included "Mexican Modern: Masters of the 20th Century" and "Roy Lichtenstein: American Indian Encounters.”

 

Admission: $8 (included with $18 museum pass); free Fridays 5-8 p.m. and Sundays 10-5 p.m. Closed Mondays.
