Museum Hill - Santa Fe

Friday nights have free entry for most museums in Santa Fe. We went to Museum Hill where there are four world class museums. One of the ones we went to was the International Folk Art Museum. One of the interesting collections was the Girald Collection. Alexander and Susan Girald started collectingon their honeymoon in 1939.
They have over 100,000 objects from more than 100 different countries. In 1953, the year that this museum opened, they gave their collection to the museum. It includes toys, dolls, masks,paintings. Also included were a number of minature village scesnes, such as an outdoor food market scene. We also went to the Contemporary Native Art Museum which was also very interesting.
