Exhibition: Only in Albuquerque

In March of 2015 the Albuquerque Museum will unveil and open to the public the highly anticipated Only in Albuquerque history gallery. After many years of redesign, construction, story development and fabrication, the Museum will give our community an interactive, engaging, fun-filled presentation of the history and culture of the central Rio Grande Valley. Along with the presentation of our community's stories, there will be lots to learn and do. Make your own family Coat of Arms; electronically send a Route 66 postcard to a friend; create a personal "quilt" of images from the Museum's collections; and record your story to share in the Museum and with friends. You will be able to experience vibrant theatres, virtual reality storybooks and use a state of the art App, developed especially for our visitors.

Only in Albuquerque features a greatly expanded story of our city from before written history to the present, set in an engaging, fun, and interactive atmosphere. Our story is told through four galleries: Spirited, Courageous, Resourceful and Innovative, all connecting to a central gallery entitled Our Land. This ingenious design provides our guests with a physical layout that reinforces the central theme: different cultures, interacting with each other in a unique geographic setting, have developed shared characteristics found only in Albuquerque and the middle Río Grande Valley. Hundreds of our city's most beloved artifacts are featured, with additional objects recently acquired yet to be unveiled.
