The Palace Seen and Unseen: A Convergence of History and Archaeology
On display through Jun 19, 2026 at the New Mexico History Museum
Reflecting current archaeological and historical perspectives, Palace Seen and Unseendraws from historic documents, photographs, and archaeological and architectural studies produced by its former residents, visitors, stewards, and scholars. When the dynamic expertise of historians and archaeologists converges, a richer story and better understanding emerges. It is this integrative approach to what is seen and unseen that guides the themes explored by this exhibition. There is no better place for this to happen than at the Palace of the Governors.
Guest curators Cordelia (Dedie) Snow and Stephen (Steve) Post have nearly 50 years of combined experience with Palace architecture, history, and archaeology. Their firsthand experience excavating within Palace walls and in its grounds provides a unique, expert perspective that visitors will appreciate. On long term view.
