The New Mexico Museum of Art is located at 107 W. Palace Avenue in Santa Fe (on the historic plaza). Built in 1917, it is admired for its New Mexico Pueblo Revival style architecture and is listed as a national historic landmark. For generations, St. Francis Auditorium has been a centerpiece of Santa Fe’s cultural and social life as a community space.


An enchanting wedding, cocktail reception in a courtyard garden full of flowers, awards ceremony in a stately boardroom, luncheon or early breakfast in a sculpture garden.

"We would highly recommend this lovely venue for future outings."
