New Mexico is a land of history and culture like no other, and there is no better way to immerse yourself in it all than with a CulturePass. A CulturePass, issued by the New Mexico Department of Cultural Affairs, is the best way to experience the state’s whole family of museums and historic sites.
Think about it
New Mexico stands out as a spirited blend of arts, history, and lifeways found in few other places. Its essence is celebrated every day at each museum and historic site. People have moved across this land for thousands of years, from Indigenous cultures to Spanish settlers. New Mexico has also been a hotbed of innovation across various fields, including farming and ranching, archaeology, and space exploration. Spend time in our museums and historic sites. Explore the links between the past and present.
What you get WITH A CulturePass
For $30, CulturePass admits you to eight museums and seven historic sites across the state, from Santa Fe to Las Cruces.
In downtown Santa Fe, wander the plaza and indulge in the remarkable collections at the New Mexico History Museum and New Mexico Museum of Art. On Santa Fe’s Museum Hill, revel in the colors and texture that shape human culture, resilience, and creativity at the Museum of International Folk Arts and Museum of Indian Arts & Culture.
In Albuquerque, walk with dinosaurs at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History & Science, and let Hispanic history, culture, and art wash over you at the National Hispanic Cultural Center.
In Alamogordo, lift off with astronauts at the New Mexico Museum of Space History.
In Las Cruces, the New Mexico Farm & Ranch Heritage Museum tells the 4,000-year story of farming and ranching on this land through its robust cattle breeding program, live demonstrations, exhibitions, and education programs. And across the entire state, New Mexico Historic Sites are footprints, left behind by the people of New Mexico in mountain paths and city streets.
With CulturePass, you can visit each of these museums and historic sites once, and it is valid for 12 consecutive months after purchase.
New Mexico is expansive and enchanting. It is impossible to see all that it has to offer in one day or weekend is impossible. CulturePass makes it possible to take in the vibrant culture of the state at your own pace.
