WAY too small. Beware of going at the end of a semester-you'll be overrun with tour/school groups. No cafe, just a small food cart with coffee, drinks and donuts in the courtyard. Wi-Fi and lockers. more »

Loved the current exhibit of O'Keeffe's work in Hawaii! The museum does a great job combining photograph's of the artist with her paintings and drawings. Look for the rooms with a great slice of the artist's life. more »

Skip it!! 3 of 5 display rooms were closed, none of the paintings on display had working audio accompaniment and the staff were astonishingly rude.
A friend & I ventured to Santa Fe for the week
end and thought we'd see the works of the famous painter. I wondered why the google ratings were so low, at 3.5 stars. Now I know. First we were given complimentary audio sets because 3 of 5 rooms were closed. Fine, it happens. I punched in the numbers of at least 10 paintings, and nada. Not a single one worked. Each time the recorded narrator apologized and informed me that the selection had no audio. Ok, but annoying. Then as my friend & I looked for more work to see, we were accosted by a staff member demanding our "complimentary" audio sets back. She emphatically told us that she needed them for patrons. HELLO!!! That was us. At that point, we had only been there for 20 minutes, tops.
Then it got ugly. Surprised but accepting of the uselessness of the place, we quietly went to the gift shop. There I committed the unholiest of sins and asked if they had magnets. I heart magnets; they are fun, frivolous, easy to travel with, and usually a happy reminder of good times spent with friends and the odd places we've journeyed to together. I was honestly lectured by the hefty, matronly cashier about Georgia O'Keeffe's last Will and Testament (really???) and about how the "arteeest" would never consent to such appalling and disgraceful use of her work. Holy Cow. I just wanted to enjoy a weekend kicking it a Southwestern town.
If you're not into paying for stuff that doesn't work and being the target of frustrated art critics day-timing it as angry clerks, you probably want to avoid this place altogether. They can Keeffe it.

Very small collection of her most recognizable work. Not the most interesting or innovative museum. more »

I liked this cute museum. I think the exhibit should have more of O`Keeffe work. I discovered more of her work in the gift shop rather than in the museum itself. more »

The exhibits were compelling, from a rotating selection of Georgia O'Keeffe's work, to an exhibit that puts her work in the context of her time (by showing the work of contemporaries so also came to Santa Fe and the Ghost Ranch), to fantastic photographs of the artist in her later years. The museum is on the small side, but I thoroughly enjoyed the nine rooms. more »

I was looking forward to coming to the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum. The day before our visit I heard on the news that several of her painting were going to be sold by the museum.
The wife & walked around looking for some of her great art, but found none. There were lots of Ansel Adams photography on display. What a waste of my time & money. I guess the better pieces are in private collections. more »

Amazing collection of O'Keefe's work that shows her growth as a person and an artist. If you love the NM landscapes, stop by to gain a new appreciation as you drive through. more »

Excellent exhibit. Smaller than I expected given the volume of work she produced but that would be nitpicking. Go early enough to give yourself about 90 months to soak it all in more »

A small museum with rotating exhibits of Georgia O'Keeffe's work. Well lit and knowledgeable staff. Makes you want to go and visit ghost ranch near Taos. more »

I'm guessing the managers had a chance to read other reviews of this facility. To that end the guards were very nice to my 20 month old son! The combination of O'Keeffe as well as other (I think they used modern serialist) to describe pieces from guest artists was cool. Enjoy! more »

Movies provide excellent background. They are part of the North American. Reciprocal Museum, so we got free entry. (Video phones not included.) more »

Georgia O'Keeffe would often paint in her car. She referred to her Model 'A' Ford as her favorite studio. Learn more in this C-SPAN American History TV video. more »

Curator guide is worth trying. Unlike our stereotypes, G O'Keeffe took very detailed, long, systematic processes in painting! But she had denied it!! more »

I came to know her life through the series of her works, and I was more interested in each of her works than before. Watch a film which runs in a small room near the entrance of the museum. This will help you to understand her life.

The Georgia O'Keeffe Museum is dedicated to the artistic legacy of Georgia O'Keeffe, to defining its ongoing significance, and to the study and interpretation of American Modernism, late nineteenth century to the present. The Museum's collections, historic properties, exhibitions, Research Center, publications, and education programs contribute to scholarly discourse and inspire diverse audiences. The Georgia O'Keeffe Museum, in Santa Fe, New Mexico, opened to the public in July 1997, eleven years after the death of the artist from whom it takes its name. Welcoming more than 2,225,000 visitors from all over the world, the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum is the most visited art museum in the state of New Mexico, and is the only museum in the world dedicated to an internationally known American woman artist. One of the most significant artists of the 20th century, Georgia O'Keeffe (1887-1986) was devoted to creating imagery that expressed what she called ”the wideness and wonder of the world as I live in it.“ She was a leading member of the Stieglitz Circle artists, headed by Alfred Stieglitz, America's first advocate of modern art in America. These avant-garde artists began to flourish in New York in the 1910s. O'Keeffe's imagesinstantly recognizable as her owninclude abstractions, large-scale depictions of flowers, leaves, rocks, shells, bones, and other natural forms, New York cityscapes, and paintings of the unusual shapes and colors of architectural and landscape forms of northern New Mexico. The Museum's collection of over 3,000 works comprises 1,149 O'Keeffe paintings, drawings, and sculptures that date from 1901 to 1984, the year failing eyesight forced O'Keeffe into retirement. The Georgia O'Keeffe Museum is the largest single repository of O'Keeffe's work in the world. Throughout the year, visitors can see a changing selection of these works. In addition, the Museum presents special exhibitions that are either devoted entirely to O'Keeffe's work or combine examples of her art with works by her American modernist contemporaries. The Museum also organizes exhibitions of works by her contemporaries, as well as by living artists of distinction. Over 140 artists other than O'Keeffe have been exhibited at the museum, such as Arthur Dove, Sherrie Levine, Jackson Pollock, and Andy Warhol. The Georgia O'Keeffe Museum Research Center opened in July 2001 as a component of the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum. As the only museum-related research facility in the world dedicated to the study of American Modernism (late nineteenth century—present), it sponsors research in the fields of art history, architectural history and design, literature, music, and photography. Its annual, competitive stipend program awards six stipends to qualified applicants who can spend three to twelve months at the Research Center, which makes its library, collections, and unique archives accessible to researchers worldwide as well as to its in-house scholars. The Museum is open daily.more »
