Please join us with FREE Admission to all as we celebrate Art and History every first Friday evening of every month with some of our additional museum and gallery friends located along Palace Avenue in the heart of the historic Santa Fe Plaza. Each month we will highlight something new and wonderful to share. Together, we hope to educate, inspire, and encourage a love and appreciation of history and the diversity of art that the city different is so well known for. For this month, the History Museum invites you to enjoy The Santos of New Mexico; a collection of sixty retablos (devotional paintings on panel) and bultos (carved religious sculptures) from 1810-1880 located in the Palace of the Governors building. Please enter by way of our main entrance at 113 Lincoln Avenue.
