From June-August, we also offer tours on Fridays at 10:00 a.m.

NEW MEXICO HISTORY MUSEUM Ever wonder why there's an obelisk in the middle of the Santa Fe Plaza? Have you noticed the gargoyles on top of the Catron Building? Where was the gambling hall? Which tucked-away building held a Manhattan Project secret?

Find out by taking a Downtown Walking Tour led by New Mexico History Museum/Palace of the Governors guides. The tours are held April 13 through Oct. 17, Monday-Saturday, beginning at 10:15 a.m. No tours on Sundays. Gather at the Palace Courtyard's Blue Gate just south of the History Museum entrance at 113 Lincoln Ave. Cost is $10. Children 16 and under are free when accompanied by an adult. Museum guides do not accept tips. (No tours are offered on the Saturdays when large events are held on the Plaza, such as Spanish Market and Santa Fe Fiesta.)

Each tour lasts about 2 hours and features a leisurely pace with plenty of opportunities to ask questions. Enjoy stories of the people and events that have made Santa Fe a world-class tourist destination. Los Compadres del Palacio, a support group of the New Mexico History Museum, operates the program with guides who are trained in Santa Fe history. (Many are also guides at the History Museum and Palace of the Governors.) Proceeds from the tours benefit the museum's programs and events.
