Albuquerque Museum

Art. History. People. In the heart of Old Town just off Route 66, Albuquerque Museum is the rock-solid cornerstone of Albuquerque’s cultural community. All things New Mexico: from the Alvarado to O’Keeffe, Blumenschein to the Bosque, and more.

The Museum brings Albuquerque to the world and the world to Albuquerque. The material here is for educational, personal, and noncommercial uses only.

Searching the Online Collection

Quick Search

Using the search box available on every page (quick search) you can enter terms that will search through different information in the collection (e.g. if you search for "portrait", this can return results that have "portrait" in the title or description).

Advanced Search

To search on specific criteria, you can use the advanced search to search within certain data fields. You can search using multiple criteria, such as the term "portrait" in the title + a date range of "1800-1900". If you are not getting any results with advanced search, try broadening your search by removing criteria.

Search Tips
  • You can use an * (asterisk) as a wildcard in searches, to match partial terms (e.g. draw* will return results for draw, drawn, drawings, etc.)
  • Use quotation marks to get more exact results - e.g. John Doe will return any results with John or Doe, but "John Doe" will return results with this exact phrase.
