Christmas decorations are always nice and fun to see.
Fun kids area where they can learn and play.
Farmers markets in the summer and outdoor concerts on the weekends.

The Museum of the Southwest is really a gem. Its 2016 renovation puts it on par with Dallas or Houston art museums, and they are rotating the permanent collection, which has some impressive Southwest and classic art. The best thing is - there is a Children's Museum (behind the Turner Mansion) that is free on Sunday afternoons, and there's a very high-tech planetarium also on the grounds. This is well worth an afternoon exploring.

A charming museum featuring local artists as well as sound classical and contemporary Western art, the Museum of the Southwest is a Charming place for both adults and children with a special museum for children. On the grounds is the Blakemore planetarium as well. A finf for family or people alone. Monthly meetings of interest and shows that change every six weeks in addition to a sound permanent collection.

Christmas at the Mansion is being held at Museum of the Southwest this holiday season. The museum is beautifully decorated with many Christmas trees and exhibiting 30 years of Santa paintings by Bill Keen. Food and drinks were being served, wonderful night catching up with old friends and meeting new ones.
