Visit us for FREE Admission as we celebrate Art and History every first Friday evening of every month! For this month, the History Museum invites you to enjoy our newest exhibition, EnchantOrama! New Mexico Magazine Celebrates 100, which explores how the publication began and its impact on the State over the years. Join Education staff for a hands-on activity to design your own custom magazine layout with photos cut from duplicate NM Magazines to create a keepsake of your experience at the museum.
Learn why and how the publication began, view a selection from over one thousand magazine covers, and enjoy seeing over two hundred photographs published in the magazine since 1923. Visitors will enjoy a mid-century office space—replete with a rotary telephone—as they peruse previous editions of the magazine or type up an article on a 1970s typewriter.
The Palace Avenue First Friday Art Walk takes place 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.
