Institutional Information

Founded in 1909, the Museum of New Mexico was located within the Palace of the Governors. In the late 1970’s the planning process began for the construction of a new New Mexico History Museum building ("Palace Annex"). Archaeological excavations took place during 2003 and 2004, and construction officially began in 2004. The Elks building and part of The Armory were demolished to create the space for the new three-story, 96,000 square foot building designed by Conrad and Woods Architects. In 2009, the New Mexico history museum officially opened to the public in the new building located at 113 Lincoln Ave.
