El Rancho de las Golondrinas Museum 2023 Season

El Rancho de las Golondrinas Museum 2023 Season

We invite you to take a journey to the past at “The Ranch of the Swallows.” This historic ranch, now a living history museum, dates from the early 1700s and was an important paraje or stopping place along the famous Camino Real, the Royal Road from Mexico City to Santa Fe. Experience the life of another time in a location unlike any other in America.

El Rancho de las Golondrinas is a living history museum located on 200 acres in a rural farming valley just south of Santa Fe, New Mexico. The Museum, dedicated to the history, heritage and culture of 18th and 19th century New Mexico, opened in 1972. Original colonial buildings on the site date from the early 1700s. In addition, historic buildings from other parts of northern New Mexico have been reconstructed at Las Golondrinas. Villagers clothed in the styles of the times show how life was lived on the frontier in early New Mexico. Special festivals and weekend events offer visitors an in-depth look into the celebrations, music, dance and many other aspects of life in the Spanish, Mexican and Territorial periods of the Southwest. El Rancho de las Golondrinas is a New Mexico Treasure and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. 

Food and Drink:
Lunch and snacks can be purchased at the food service area on weekends. Visitors may also bring picnics to enjoy on the grounds. Alcohol is not allowed on the grounds.
