New Mexico has an incredibly fascinating history, so it makes sense that there is a museum dedicated to just that, and it's called the New Mexico History Museum (a fitting name!)
The New Mexico History Museum is home to a number of exhibits that tell the story of the region, from the lands, to the people who called it home.
Kids can learn about the early history of the indigenous people, how they lived off the land, and their traditions and culture. There's an exhibit on the Spanish colonization, and how that changed and influenced the region, as well as the Mexico period, and what that meant to the future of the state.
Of course, the famous Santa Fe Trail is covered too, and you can learn all about the travel and commerce on this legendary route.
The New Mexico History Museum is a fascinating way to explore the heritage and diverse cultures of not only the state, but of the Southwest region.
So why not enjoy an educational family day out next time you are in Santa Fe, and see what makes the state so incredibly special!
