Although the permanent galleries are closed during renovation, visitors can visit the museum store, which spotlights unique Native American artists, and participate in craft-making projects such as “Kit and Kaboodle”, peruse an exhibition space with several items from the permanent collection, or explore the stunning gardens.
The Southwest Museum also features the work of a new local artist every month, kicking off with the NELAart Second Saturday Gallery Night.
Going Metro has its rewards. When Metro patrons display their valid Metro pass, Metro Rail ticket or Destination Discounts card at the Museum Store, they will receive a free gift!
