The New Mexico History Museum is an addition to the Palace of the Governors (the nation’s oldest continuously occupied government building). The New Mexico History Museum includes centuries of stories that made the American West — from early Native inhabitants to Spanish colonists, Santa Fe Trail riders, outlaws, the railroad, artists, scientists, hippies and more. Films, computer interactives, artifacts, photos, maps, paintings and more tell the New Mexico story.
