Museum of Indian Arts & Culture
Tells the stories of the people of the Southwest from pre-history through contemporary times
The museum will be closed until May 2021 for installation of new exhibitions.
The museum’s collections include 80,000 archaeological, ethnographic, and fine arts objects, and more than 10 million artifacts from almost 12,000 carefully excavated archaeological sites across New Mexico. As a part of the Laboratory of Anthropology, the museum interprets the history and contemporary life of the Pueblo, Navajo, Apache, and other indigenous cultures of the Southwest.
The long-term exhibition Here, Now and Always combines Native American voices with artifacts and interactive multimedia to tell the complex stories of the Southwest. The Buchsbaum Gallery displays modern and historic pottery from the region’s pueblos. Five changing galleries present exhibitions on subjects ranging from archaeological excavations to contemporary art. In addition, an outdoor sculpture garden offers rotating exhibits of works by Native American sculptors.
