If you know of any school that would like to come out to our Spring Spanish Colonial Days please tell them to call Amy at (505) 471-2261.

Some topics you can discuss before and after your visit are manos and matates, acequias and agriculture, Parajes along El Camino Real, and how different life was before all the modern accommodations we now take for granted.

If you are one of our wonderful Volunteers we thank you in advance for your continued service to the Museum on these action-filled days. We specialize in Hands-On-History and future generations gain knowledge of the past through your enthusiastic efforts. Again thank you all for making these days exciting and educational all at the same time.
