The collection includes toys and dolls, costumes, masks, textiles of all kinds, religious folk art, paintings, beadwork, and more. More than a million visitors have passed through the doors into the special world of Girard since the exhibition opened in 1982.

The Hispanic Heritage Wing opened in 1988 and underwent renovation, reopening in the fall of 2009. It continues the spotlight on Hispanic folk art from New Mexico and beyond.
