Albuquerque Museum History Collection: Only in Albuquerque

Deborah C. Slaney

Albuquerque Museum History Collection: Only in Albuquerque highlights the museum’s rich history collection, drawing examples from thirty-five thousand artifacts, works of art, maps, and photographs. The objects range from Hispanic religious art, Native American and Hispanic textiles and jewelry, toys and early computers, to railroad and Route 66 memorabilia. The collection represents the history of New Mexico’s central Rio Grande Valley and Greater Albuquerque from before written history through the present.

This book is the third in the Albuquerque Museum Collection Series. Previously published books in the series are Casa San Ysidro: The Gutiérrez/Minge House in Corrales, New Mexico by Ward Alan Minge, and Albuquerque Museum Photo Archives Collection: Images in Silver compiled by Glenn Fye.
