What is your COVID-19 safety policy?

We encourage visitors to be proactive about safeguarding their health and the health of those around them. Washing hands with soap and water, staying home if you are feeling ill, wearing masks, and maintaining a respectful distance from others are all ways to reduce your risk of getting or spreading sickness.

What is your pet policy?

el Museo is a city-owned building and must abide by municipal regulations. Only service animals are allowed inside el Museo. The City of Santa Fe states: "a service animal is individually trained to do work or perform tasks for an individual with a disability. Service animals must be on a lead or otherwise under the physical control and supervision of the owner at all times. Animals providing emotional support, well-being, comfort, or companionship are not considered service animals." Thank you for your understanding.
