Below, we’ve picked our top five favorite museums in Albuquerque – though there are plenty more we’d be happy to talk to you about during your stay! 

  1. Of the many great museums in Albuquerque, our favorite is the New Mexico Museum of Natural History & Science. This is one of the many museums in Albuquerque within walking distance of our Albuquerque Bed and Breakfast. It offers a fascinating glimpse into the evolution of our natural world. In addition to their fascinating permanent exhibits, there’s also a fantastic range of traveling exhibits that make their way to the museum each year, meaning you’ll have a different experience every time you visit. The planetarium is also exceptional. 
  2. If there’s one place to go to truly begin your understanding of New Mexico and its Pueblo Native American Culture, it’s the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center. Here, you’ll find a stunning collection of culture, history, and art dedicated to these peoples. All 19 New Mexican Pueblos are represented here, ensuring a lasting legacy for this vital part of New Mexico’s heritage. 
  3. Another of our favorite museums in Albuquerque is the Albuquerque Museum of Art & History. It, too, is located within walking distance in Old Town Albuquerque and is a spectacular destination for art lovers. Here, you’ll find 400 years of regional history and a unique and expansive collection of Southwestern art to admire, including works from famed artists like Georgia O’Keeffe.
  4. One of the more interesting museums in Albuquerque is the National Museum of Nuclear Science and History, which walks visitors through the development of Nuclear Science and the Atomic Age. It includes extensive exhibits on the famed Manhattan Project, as well s the Cold War. This is truly a remarkable part of New Mexico’s history and its impact on our nation and the world as a whole.
  5. If you’re here to do a little hot air ballooning in the blue skies over New Mexico, then don’t miss the Anderson Abruzzo Albuquerque International Balloon Museum. Of course, we can’t talk about museums in Albuquerque dedicated to hot air ballooning without also recommending you take hot air balloon rides in Albuquerque!
