Discover New Mexico’s Authentic Old West Culture

Recognized as one of the most culturally diverse regions in the country, a visit to New Mexico will leave you with a deeper appreciation of this unique blend of ancient cultures, reflected in every day things like architecture, artwork, cultural activities, and cuisine.  Visiting local museums, such as Santa Fe’s New Mexico History Museum, the living museum at El Rancho De Las Golondrinas, and New Mexico Museum of Art in Santa Fe, or the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science, or the Albuquerque Museum in downtown Albuquerque is a wonderful way to immerse yourself and gain insights into the traditions of New Mexico.  The Indian Pueblo Cultural Center in Albuquerque is considered the gateway into the 19 Pueblo’s of New Mexico, where the spirit of the Old West has been carefully and thoughtfully preserved by these cultures.  The museum at the cultural center features a permanent exhibit that offers guests a historical overview of the Pueblo world, and a contemporary exhibit featuring original artwork and craftsmanship of each of the 19 Pueblos of today.

Authentic Old West New MexicoFor a more unique glimpse into the history of the Old West and the cultures that have influenced New Mexico for centuries, You can take excursions to see ancient cliff dwellings or petroglyphs that will introduce you to a millennia of history.  A great daytrip to take for this is to the Petroglyph National Monument, which is one of the largest petroglyph sites in North America.  For a truly scenic glimpse of the romantic Old West of New Mexico, take a ride on the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad.  This beautiful railroad, built in 1881, is America’s most authentic steam-operated railroad, and is a proud remnant of the spirit that won the West. The world encountered along the 64 miles of narrow-gauge railroad nestled in the Rocky Mountains between the New Mexico and Colorado border is the Authentic West of Billy the Kid, Kit Carson, and Butch Cassidy.
