New Mexico is well-known for its arts community. The state's art museums feature everything from folk art to glass to sculpture to paintings by Georgia O'Keeffe. But there's more to experience in New Mexico museums than art. Here, visitors can find something special in every county in the state. Parks, museums, fairs, festival, and tours are held year-round across New Mexico. The Smokey Bear Historical Park in Capitan, the National Atomic Museum in Albuquerque, the Clovis Depot Model Train Museum and the War Eagles Museum in Santa Teresa are but a few of the choices. There really is a museum for just about every interest.
Another great way to experience New Mexico is through art festivals across the state. During the summer months, there's a festival to be found somewhere in New Mexico every weekend. Local, regional and national artists bring their beautiful creations out of the studio for everybody to enjoy. Artist studio tours abound throughout the state—from Farmington to Silver City. These tours offer an opportunity for visitors to meet the artists and see first-hand how they create such masterpieces.
Art isn't the only thing to experience in New Mexico. From ice caves to monasteries to flying saucer landing sites, there's something amazing to experience in every part of New Mexico.
