Visit The Georgia O'Keeffe Museum

No trip to Santa Fe would be complete without paying a visit to one of its most famous residents: Georgia O'Keeffe. Frequently referred to as "the mother of American modernism," O'Keeffe was a world-renowned artist who called Santa Fe her home for over 50 years. Today, her former home and studio are open to the public as part of The Georgia O'Keeffe Museum. Located just a short walk from the Historic Santa Fe Plaza, the museum is home to hundreds of O'Keeffe's paintings, drawings, and sculptures. It's also worth noting that admission to the museum includes access to all of its temporary exhibitions, so be sure to allow yourself plenty of time to explore!
