We enjoyed this little gem. The family is very friendly and they obviously know their turquoise. Don't judge a book by it's cover because this place is much more than skin deep .

Don't let the outside fool you. There is more fascinating information contained in this museum than you can see in an afternoon. All of it is thoughtfully presented by the family that has lived and breathed the Turquoise story for generations. We will do again when in Albuquerque!
