The Folk a art museum is excellent. We could have spent the whole day there. Really great gift shop as well with authentic items for purchase. There’s a restaurant on site that was also excellent.

Incredible collections, thoughtfully curated and an amazing gift shop, to boot! I have seen wonders from around the world here. Some exhibits, truly, have touched my heart, putting me in touch with the creative human spirit from many vantage points and cultures.

A very interesting collection of folk art. Get a tour by a docent to help put folk art into perspective vs fine arts. The Tramp Art exhibit was outstanding.

I work within walking distance of this museum and have visited it numerous times. It really is a feast for the eyes and an education at the same time. Budget several hours for this gem on Museum Hill.

The Museum of International Folk Art is my favorite museum in Santa Fe. The Girard collection is unlike anything else you've seen and their rotating exhibits are always relevant and interesting.

The “Tramp Art” exhibit was very cool. Didn’t realize this existed. Also the toy and figurines room was astounding and all one persons collection. Definitely worth a visit
