Two of Santa Fe’s Museums

28 Sep

We visited two of the many museums in Santa Fe and really wished we had had more time to visit more – next time maybe!  Two were close to each other,  the Wheelwright Museum of the American Indian, and the Museum of International Folk Art and the precinct between them was full of  sculptures.

We first visited the Folk Museum, and exhibition of Mexico’s Day of the Dead memorabilia:

We absolutely loved the Museum of the American Indian, the words as much as the exhibits. Please click on any photo for greater detail.

And one more touching and very beautiful sculpture outside…….

    Thank you so much for sharing all of this. Such wonderful photos!
    The Lightning Boy sculpture is both beautiful and heartbreaking.

      I agree – such a sad story of a very talented youngster. His spirit really does live on.

    Lovely post, Sally.
    I love the idea of the “first laugh party.” 😀

      Me too. Wish I’d known about that when our four were babies, what a good reason for a party! 😊
