SANTA FE Beginning this fall, the New Mexico History Museum will offer guided tours of the Palace of the Governors during breaks in construction activity.


The tours will allow a rare look at this historic building as it undergoes preservation treatment in support of its continued use as a public museum.


Beginning Aug. 30, information about tours will be available at the front desk of the New Mexico History Museum or by calling 505.476.5200.


Rehabilitation of the Palace of the Governors—a National Historic Landmark—is being done to improve protection of the building and its contents, upgrade gallery spaces, and reinforce the building’s historic character. Installation of a fire suppression system and new equipment for heating and air conditioning is approaching completion.


Based on current estimates, the remainder of the work will be done by the end of the year. Once rehabilitation is complete, three exhibitions are scheduled for installation over a six-month period.
