Things to do in New Mexico

  • San Miguel Mission San Miguel Mission Santa Fe, New Mexico
    The San Miguel Mission or Chapel is the oldest standing religious center in the nation, built somewhere around 1610 to 1626. Sometime during the Pueblo Revolt of 1680, it was damaged, but rebuilt in 1710 after the Spanish conquest becoming their chapel. The reredos that is made of wood, also has a wooden statue of Saint Michael, that was carved in the early 1700s, and put in the church in 1798. A reredos, or often spelled raredos, is the screening or types of decoration that stand behind the altar, most often depicting religious iconography or imagery. It has been referred to as an altarpiece. The chapel has been restored and rebuilt many times over the centuries, but the walls made of adobe still stand, although they may have been stuccoed over. It is a contributing building in the Barrio De Analco Historic District that has become a National Historic Landmark. Originally constructed by the Tlaxcalan Indians, it was redone in the rebuilding in 1710. Santa Fe was started in 1610, and the chapel sometime during that period. In 1859, the church was used by the Christian Brothers, who commenced to take over the school. In 1881, they bought the church, the recently finished school, another adobe building and the land from the Archdiocese of Sante Fe. Since its early beginnings, the church was used as a chapel and shrine to the saint, then a military chapel, the Christian Brothers oratory, a school chapel and then a barrio church. Now it has become a historical treasure, tourist attraction and cultural heritage. It is still a shrine to the saint and masses are celebrated every week. The reredos is the oldest one in New Mexico, with the statue of St. Michael, the Archangel celebrating his victory over the devil dates back to the year 1709, when it came here from Mexico. It is a beautifully carved, gilded and painted wooden statue that sits in the center of the reredos just behind the altar. The San Jose bell, once hung in the tower, but have since been removed to the gift shop; no one is sure where it was cast, but guesses have been in Cerrilos in 1836, or the Parroquia in Sante Fe in 1856.

  • Museum of International Folk Art
    This museum was started by Florence Dibell Bartlett in 1953, and has become internationally known as the home of the biggest collection of folk art in the world. The 135,000 relics is the base for four individual wings, where the magnificent artifacts are. These wings are; Neutrogena, Hispanic heritage, Bartlett and Girard. The first building was designed by New Mexican architect John Gaw Meem and given to the state as a gift by Ms. Bartlett. In the Girard wing, there is a very popular display called Multiple Visions: A Common Bond, where the toys, textiles, pop art and folk art is the focus of more than a hundred countries. The display is remarkable since it was designed by the creator, Alexander Girard, a designer and architect that gave the collection to the museum. There are dolls, toys, beadwork, paintings, masks, textiles of every conceivable innovation, religious folk art and many others special items. Over a million people have visited this magnificent room since it opened in 1982. It is a special favorite of children and those that are young at heart, that draws them back continuously to see their most favorite items or just to see what new creation has arrived. This display is only representative of 10% of the entire collection, and it has become a resource and inspiration to educators, scholars and artists all over the world. The Neutrogena collection was donated by the Neutrogena CEO, Lloyd Cotsen in the year 1995 and contains over 2500 superb ceramics, carvings and textiles from the world over. Because of its wonderful quality and great quantity, it has become a national resource for the study and enjoyment of world costumes and materials. Cotsen's treasure chest is an open preservation gallery where the numerous cases and drawers let visitors get close and personal to the many items, as well as finding out how the museum takes care of its collections. The Hispanic heritage wing was begun in 1988 and was the only place for Spanish/Hispanic art in New Mexico; with marvelous art from around the state and other Hispanic areas.

  • Georgia O'Keefe Museum
    The Georgia O'Keefe Museum is located in Santa Fe, New Mexico and was opened in 1997; just eleven years after Georgia passed on. Over 2.25 million people from across the globe has come here to visit the one and only museum that is devoted to the world renown artist. It is also the most visited museum in the state of New Mexico and this magnificent monument to one of the most admired female artists that ever lived, specializes in showcasing her spectacular works of art that come from the wideness and wonderment of the world around her. She was one of the leaders of the Stieglitz Circle artists that was started and run by its founder Alfred Stieglitz, the first American artist that advocated the beauty of modern art in this country. The avant-garde creators started flourishing in New York during the first decade of the 20th century, and Georgia's paintings and photographs were becoming instantaneous works that were her specialized attributes. These exotic images were of bones, shells, leaves, rocks, flowers and other natural forms that spread into the realm of New York cityscapes, landscapes, colors, unique shapes and architectural creations from New Mexico. The collection contains over 3000 prolific works with 1148 O'Keefe paintings, sculptures and drawings that are from the period of 1901 until 1984, when the fading eyesight of the wonderful woman started to affect her work and forced her to stop. This exciting museum is the biggest single archive of Georgia's work in the entire world. During the year, the collection is rotated, so that all her beautiful works can be enjoyed, as well as special exhibitions that might be dedicated to her, or that relate to her work by her modern contemporaries. Some 140 artists have been shown here that include such greats as Jackson Pollock, Andy Warhol, Arthur Dove and Sherrie Levine. The research center of the museum was started in 2001, and is the only museum related research center in the world that is devoted to the study of American modernism. They continue to sponsor research in the areas of photography, architectural history, art history, design, music and literature. One of the most exciting programs at the center is the yearly competitive stipend venue where 6 awards are given to exceptional applicants that can spend 3 to 12 months at the center, where their library, archives and collections are made available, as well as to those in the rest of the world for research, education, information or study.

  •  American International Rattlesnake MuseumAmerican International Rattlesnake Museum Albuquerque, New Mexico
    This museum in Albuquerque, New Mexico is dedicated to snakes, but mostly rattlesnakes. It contains the biggest collection of rattlesnakes in the entire world, and has more species than the San Diego Zoo, Bronz Zoo, National Zoo, Philadelphia Zoo, Denver Zoo and San Francisco Zoo all together. There are many related artworks, memorabilia and artifacts, and a gift shop.  The museum strives to be an educational and exciting venue for the entire family. We have no doubt that the museum is exciting, in fact, for many the sight may be too close and personal for them to visit, or stay long enough to see the entire collection, but it does help demystify some of the many myths that have been created by these misunderstood creatures. They talk about phobias, mysteries, and the truth about these magnificent specimens that have been collected from around the globe. It seems that only about a fourth of the rattlesnakes are venomous, and only a few are extremely dangerous. Most of them have really weak venom when they are compared to the venoms of snakes like the viper and cobras. Copperheads and water moccasins also have weak venom. The western and eastern diamondbacks are fairly dangerous since they can strike within half their body distance, they are big, and their deep puncture wounds will suck up the big amounts of venom they carry. The western diamondback will defend itself more readily, and the Mohave rattlesnake is the most deadly of all the rattlers in this country. Although the coral snake has a potent venom that is a neurotoxin, but it isn't an aggressive snake so just beware, and the milk snake is the same coloring as the coral, but its stomach is white and the bands don't go all the way around it. Rattlers usually will try to avoid us, unless we are treading on their tuff and we come upon them, in which most cases it is the snake that dies. The majority of the bites are from a person trying to catch them, kill them or capture them. The bite is more defensive reaction, like the bite of a shark, thinking you are food in the water; and the rattler's tail or rattle is a way to let people know that you are close to them and is meant for bigger animals than man. Every year in this country, there are about 8000 bites and only 12 or so result in death. The rattlesnake is one of those wonderful creatures whose main job is to rid us of the terrible disease that rodents carry and they are a great help in that respect. Much like the rat snakes in Florida, and it is a shame that people have such fears, rather than respect, for these unique animals.

  • Taos Pueblo Taos Pueblo New Mexico
    The Taos Pueblo is an exquisite example of the pueblos that were built many centuries ago by the Native Americans living in the southwest. This unique, but splendid adobe group of buildings were built by the Pueblo people over 1000 years ago, and is a mile north of Taos, New Mexico. The Red Willow Creek or Rio Pueblo, is a little creek that goes through the center of the pueblo from the main source of the Sangre de Cristo Range. The reservation that is part of the pueblo is 95,000 acres and has some 1900 residents living there. It is a member of the Eight Northern Pueblos and is well known for the most conservative and secretive groups of pueblos in the nation. The most spectacular architectural item is the multi-storied compound of reddish-brown adobe residences that have been cut in to two distinct areas by the Rio Pueblo creek. On their web site, they state that it was constructed between 1000 and 1450 A. D., and has been designated a National Historic Landmark, in 1960 and was made a World Heritage Site in 1992. In 2006, there were only 150 people living there year round.

  • Rio Grande Gorge BridgeRio Grande Gorge Bridge Taos, New Mexico
    This bridge is a cantilever truss bridge that goes across the Rio Grande Gorge some 10 miles northwest of Taos, New Mexico, and is the fifth highest bridge in the United States. It was finished in 1965, and is part of US Route 64. In 1966, the bridge was given the most beautiful steel bridge in the long span category in the country, and has been in numerous movies. These include Wild Hogs, Natural Born Killers, Twins, Terminator Salvation and She's having a Baby. It sits 650 feet above the Rio Grande river, and is two spans measuring 300 feet on the ends and a 600 foot span in the middle. It has, sadly, been the sight of a few suicides. In its beginning, it was referred to as the bridge to nowhere, since the road hadn't been finished on the one side. There are stories by local people that say there are ghosts that talk the suicides into jumping off the bridge, and was investigated by the Southwest Ghost Hunters Association in 2005; without any significant outcomes. One tale tells of a particular ghost that has been seen by more than one person on the west side of the bridge, wearing jeans and a white T shirt; and she seems Hispanic. People has mistaken her for a real person, her apparition being so lifelike, as she walks the bridge from the east end and finally disappears in the middle. One very credible eye witness was a state trooper who saw the ghost one evening in 2001, as he was heading west. He passed the young female walking east, and imagining she had had car trouble went to the end and turned around. As he was turning around, he could see down the bridge, and he was surprised to see nothing there. He sped around, since he knew she couldn't have made it to the other end that quick and surmised that she had jumped. As he arrived near the center, he used his high powered spotlight to search the area down in the gorge, without results. He considered that she may have fallen in the water and drifted down river, so he called the report in. No one was missing, and no body was found. Three months later, he again crossed the bridge and saw her once more. He went to investigate and once more she had disappeared. After talking with other troopers that had traveled the route, he found that a few had had similar experiences, as well as learning about the ghost story. Most have been told by locals, while some have found their way onto web forums about ghosts.

  • King's Palace in the Carlsbad Caverns National ParkKing's Palace Cave, Carlsbad Caverns, New Mexico
    Sitting deep in the Guadalupe Mountains of the Carlsbad Caverns National Park, the Carlsbad Caverns draw huge crowds of people each year. There are two ways to explore this beautiful expanse, the elevator that goes to the lunchroom some 750 into the center of the earth, or the main entrance where you can wander or follow guide maps to explore, and be amazed at the many types of formations and the incredible beauty that lies inside this massive majestic cavern. There are two entries in the National Register of Historic Places, the Rattlesnake Springs Historic District and Caverns Historic District; and almost two thirds of the park have been made into a wilderness area, so that it can be preserved for future generations of visitors and that at no time can the site be modified or changed. The King's Palace is one of the huge rooms that exist inside the caverns, and this is the first of four rooms in the scenic rooms area. It was named the palace, since in the very center sits a magnificent and amazing formation that resembles a big castle or palace. These caverns are so beautiful that the lights are shut off so that the true darkness and aura can be experienced. It is a spectacular place to visit with so many examples of cave rock formations that you will be taking more pictures per room than any other attraction in the world. Going down a small 80 foot hill, you will want to wander wherever you can so that all the mystery and magnificence can be seen and enjoyed.
