Spanish Colonial Gallery 

Gallery 8a houses the Spanish colonial collection of furniture and household implements.

The textiles that are on display in this room are examples of Hispanic weavings that have become signature Rio Grande designs. Hispanic blankets were woven on a European treadle loom such as the one on display in this Gallery. The furniture, colchas, Rio Grande blankets and the architecture of the room itself are examples of early Hispanic life in New Mexico.
