Albuquerque Museum

The Albuquerque Museum, on the edge of the city's Old Town, explores New Mexico's past using the largest collection of Spanish colonial artefacts in the United States. Exhibits like Spanish armour and swords mingle with a recreated 18th-century adobe house compound. The museum also pays homage to the Vaqueros, the original cowboys who rode the range in New Mexico in the 16th century. There are also hands-on experiences to try like spinning wool, and a theatre where films about the city are shown regularly. The museum provides a walking tour of the Old Town area departing at 11am each day except Monday during spring, summer and fall.
