Art, Architecture and History Walking Tours of Santa Fe

The Madeleine Bed and Breakfast Inn has a rich and fascinating history, having been built in 1886 by a railroad tycoon named George Cuyler Preston.   Guests love reading our material about the background of this beautiful Queen Anne Victorian, which has quite a storied past.  Of course the history and architecture of Santa Fe is even more vast, and what better way to learn about it than to take one of the Art, Architecture and History Walking Tours given by docents of the Museum of New Mexico.  Discover the meaning behind the obelisk on The Plaza, visit the top-secret location of The Manhattan Project, and be regaled with tales of gambling halls and public hangings. 

The 2-hour tours are given Monday through Saturday at 10:15am, now through October 15, 2011.  Meet at the Palace Courtyard’s Blue Gate, just south of the New Mexico History Museum entrance at 113 Lincoln Ave.  Admission is $10 for adults and FREE for children under the age of 16 (when accompanied by an adult)
