Marilyn JonesWhen it comes to museums, Santa Fe has a lot to brag about. From art — including the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum — to the Santa Fe Children’s Museum, there are more than a dozen museums to tour in this city.

On a recent visit, I chose to tour three, each with a different story to tell.

Museum of International Folk Art

Home to the world’s largest collection of folk art, this museum represents cultures from around the world. With a collection of more than 150,000 artifacts, the museum is a labyrinth of color, shape, and beauty, from carvings to paintings to creations on paper.
