New Mexico CulturePass | New Mexico Department of Cultural Affairs

New Mexico CulturePass

As communities across our nation and world become increasingly homogenous, New Mexico stands out as refreshingly different—a spirited blend of arts, history, and lifeways found in few other places.

The joy of visiting New Mexico is getting to know us. And there is no better way to get acquainted than to explore our exceptional museums and historic sites.

From Native artifacts to space exploration, world-class folk art to awesome dinosaurs, the essence of New Mexico is celebrated every day at our popular attractions. The New Mexico CulturePass opens the doors to them all—the state's entire family of museums and historic sites.

How to Purchase

Purchase your CulturePass at any state museum or historic site. You can begin using it right away. On the date you visit your first museum or historic site, the pass will be validated, and it can then be used for the next 12 consecutive months.

Purchase by Phone

To pre-purchase a CulturePass, call Susan Hill at 505-476-1126 with your credit card information. You will have the option to receive a CulturePass by mail (delivery within 10 days) or be sent an email voucher that can be redeemed upon your first visit to any state museum or historic site.

Using your CulturePass

The CulturePass allows one visit to each state museum and historic site. Passes are for general museum and historic site admission only. Films shown in museum theaters and certain special events and programming will incur additional charges. You can start using your pass whenever you want. Passes are nonrefundable and are not replaceable if lost.

Please contact museums and historic sites to verify current hours.

Many locations are closed on Mondays, Tuesdays, and certain holidays. Don’t forget that many museums and historic sites offer free or reduced admission to children and seniors, and that some offer free admission to New Mexico residents on certain days of the week or month.
