The New Mexico Museum of Art’s Holiday Open House is back this year and better than ever. In addition to our favorite traditional offerings such as Teatro Duende’s performances of “A Holiday Party for Pappa Gus” with the Baumann replica marionettes, holiday crafts, and plenty of activities to help visitors explore the galleries, we have even more in store this year. When the marionettes aren’t performing, you can enjoy two concerts by the Santa Fe Youth Symphony Association’s jazz ensembles. If that weren’t enough to encourage you to visit us, this year the Holiday Open House is in partnership with the New Mexico History Museum right across the street where they will have a whole other set of performances and activities for all ages to enjoy.
This event is FREE for everyone at both locations.
