In continuous use for centuries. Pause on that phrase a moment. Not many places in the US can also say. Native Americans selling a lot of stuff. Nice folks to talk to.

Go during the morning and you will see 70 Native Indians selling their art laid out in front of you on a blanket. Check everybody out then go back and find that piece you first liked.

Didn't actually go in as they were closed that day. But all along the front of the building, the local natives display their wares. Authentic jewelry, blankets, pottery etc.

We love and have been coming here for decades. Naturally you have a list of things to do, places to shop, eat and visit. This should be included to get the real Santa Fe experience.

This 400 year old adobe/museum sits on the plaza and is a interesting piece of Santa Fe history. Native American artists sell their wares out front and good bargains are plentiful.

We enjoyed our visit to the extensive museum here. Easily worth a couple of hours of your time to discover the history of the area. We learned a lot on our visit.

On reading some reviews we should have gone inside, we didn't realize we could, instead we walked along the front of the building. It's very unimposing but it carries a lot of history. It goes back to 1610 when Santa Fe was founded. This much...More

Don't pass up an item that you really like, thinking you may find it cheaper elsewhere. Great prices!

Bargaining is a bit of a lost art. Negotiating a price that you are willing to pay and one that the seller is willing to accept needs to be done respectfully. The potential buy never knows for sure what price the seller... More

The space is packed every day with the local vendors selling a wide variety of items. They are very friendly and it is fun to talk with them about their histories and knowledge of the area.
