The Albuquerque Museum, or by its full name, The Albuquerque Museum of Art and History is located in Albuquerque, New Mexico in Old Town Albuquerque.
The Albuquerque Museum is dedicated to preserving the art of the American Southwest and the history of Albuquerque and the Middle Rio Grande Valley of New Mexico. The museum also contributes significantly to the cultural and educational programs in the city of Albuquerque. The museum features art of the Southwest and its global influences, as well as 400 years of Albuquerque history with permanent installations and special exhibitions of national and international origin.

The museum was first opened as the Museum of Albuquerque in 1967 and located in the old Albuquerque International Sunport Terminal. The collection outgrew the available space in the terminal, and the current location was built in 1979. The building was designed by Antoine Predock and was significantly expanded in 2005.The museum's permanent exhibits are dedicated to art in New Mexico, and the history of Albuquerque include early maps, conquistador armor, weavings, and other artifacts of colonial life in New Mexico. The museum also hosts changing exhibits, a massive photo archive, art galleries, and maintains an outdoor sculpture garden on the grounds
