Activity Overview

The Museum of International Folk Art aims to shine a light on arts, cultures and traditions from around the world. Their desire is to show to their visitors the diversity of our world through folk art from nations the world over. Their scope is large as one would expect and their collections are impressive. Come along to be amazed by the imagination and artistry of other cultures.

Things to Do

  • "Multiple Visions: A Common Bond" is the name of the Museum's longest running exhibit. It displays the amazing collection which Alexander and Susan Girard worked up over their lifetime married together starting during their honeymoon to Mexico in 1939.
  • The collection is made up of various objects, miniatures and toys; 100,000 gathered from over 100 countries across 6 continents in total. What you see on display in the Girard Wing is only 10% of the total collection. It is a charming, bizarre, odd and wonderful assortment of hand crafted artifacts that represent the imagination of the human mind in its many incarnations.
  • Take a walk in docent led tour of the Museum's exhibits for an extra insight into the context and history of the individual works and the facility's collections. Walk in tours take place three times a day, at 10:30 am, 11:30 am and 2:00 pm. If you want to organize a private walking tour for a group of 10 or more then call (505) 476-1217.
