Museum of International Folk Art


Member Rating 4 out of 5 by camera-gal on November 20, 2000

This is perhaps one of the best art museums Santa Fe has to offer. The Museum of International Folk Art has works from over 100 countries. It's divided into 3 sections. The first wing exhibits a collection of New Mexican, Mexican, Brazilian, European, African, and the folk art of other countries.

The second section is the Neutrogena wing. It houses an eccentric collection of art arranged in an 'Alice in Wonderland' setting.

The third and largest wing houses only 1/10 of Alexander and Susan Girard's sizable collection of dolls, figurines and doll houses. It is amazing to imagine how much they acquired in their lifetimes--true collectors.

Plan to spend at least 2 hours wandering through this museum.
