about The Albuquerque Museum of Art and History:
Four Centuries: The History of Albuquerque is also a permanent installation. With a docent guided tour, Museum visitors can enjoy a hands-on experience by feeling the different types of fur that the Pueblos trapped, lifting the armor of Spanish Conquistadors, and touching everyday objects from the casas of the Old West. Tours are offered Tuesday through Sunday at 2pm.
The Sculpture Garden includes over 50 pieces of art. Kids have the freedom of being outdoors as they explore the many abstract and some very lifelike sculptures. Tours are offered Tuesday through Saturday at 10am, April through November, and are free with admission.
