History Museum Guides Start New Season of Downtown Walking Tours on April 22

April 16, 2013


Museum-trained guides in Santa Fe history will resume their Downtown Walking Tours on April 22, Monday—Saturday, through mid-October. The tours begin at 10:15 am in front of the Blue Gate just south of the New Mexico History Museum’s main entrance at 113 Lincoln Ave. Tours cost $10; children 16 and under free when accompanied by an adult. Museum guides do not accept tips.


Each tour lasts about 2 hours and features a leisurely pace with plenty of opportunities to ask questions. Enjoy stories of the people and events that have made Santa Fe a world-class tourist destination. Los Compadres del Palacio, a support group of the New Mexico History Museum, operates the program with guides who are trained in Santa Fe history. (Many are also guides at the History Museum and Palace of the Governors.) Proceeds from the tours benefit the museum’s programs and events.


Special group tours can be arranged by calling (505) 476-5200.
