Since it was free day for museums, we wandered across the street to the natural history museum as well. It certainly was a stark contrast to the art museum. Where the art museum was as quiet as a library, the natural history museum was full of loud and boisterous kids all playing with the exhibits. The exhibit I was most fascinated with was the history of modern computing. ABQ was ground zero for the personal computer back in the 70's as Microsoft set up operations here. I think it still goes down as one of the city's biggest failures that they let the company slip through their fingers to the benefit of Seattle.
We only spent a couple of hours at the museums, but it was nice to get out and do things. It was capped off by a nice New Mexican brunch at one of our favorite local eateries.
