About El Palacio 
El Palacio was first published in 1913, one year after New Mexico reached statehood. The name of the magazine — “the palace” — refers to the Palace of the Governors, the first museum in what historically is referred to as the Museum of New Mexico, established in 1909, eventually reorganized under the New Mexico Department of Cultural Affairs. El Palacio covers art, culture, and history of the Southwest, with emphasis on the exhibitions, research, and programs of the state museums, historic sites, and cultural institutions of New Mexico.
