Palace of the Governors to close for 6 months for upgrades

Posted On: Jul 12, 2018   |   Posted By: National Post

SANTA FE, N.M. - The Palace of the Governors in heart of Santa Fe's historic district is scheduled to close for six months as part of an ongoing restoration project.
Museum officials announced this week that the building will close Aug. 1 while heating, air conditioning and fire-suppression equipment is installed.
New Mexico History Museum executive director Andrew Wulf says the work won't affect other parts of the downtown complex, including the area where Native American vendors sell jewelry.
Officials say the temporary closure means the palace's exhibits will be taken down. That will allow curators and educators to rethink the museum's interpretive plan. Some of the exhibits date back to the 1970s.
Exhibitions planned for 2019 will highlight the formation of the Old Spanish Trail and artwork by Native American artists who will address themes of revolt and reconciliation.
