The The Oldest House is considered to be around 350 years old ( supposed to be built around 1747-1760) and a fine example of Spanish Pueblo architecture.
The house is located in the Barrio de Analco Historic District and keeps the essence of 18th century Santa Fe alive.
The western part of the house has thick adobe walls (signature to Pueblo architecture), dirt floors, low ceilings and a corner fireplace.
- Craft shop and museum located to the east of the house where you can buy gifts and souvenirs.

Oldest House Museum Reviews & Ratings
Historically important so worth a 10 minute visit. Very small and attached to a nice art/craft store. Fortunately admission is free and it's easily added to a visit to the extremely venerable San Miguel Church which is only a few steps away.
Really special experience. Urge you to share the experience with your friends as we did. The staff was so knowledgeable and friendly.
Worth the visit! Old house with nice artifacts located in a gift shop. The woman running the shop was very friendly and knowledgeable about the surrounding area.
Proclaimed the Oldest House in the US (though I think there are some First People whom would make a good argument against that, and perhaps even some folks from parts of Florida) - but hey, who am I to judge. A couple of rooms remain as a museum, with some artifacts. Nice gift store. Oh, and parking (a plus in Santa Fe)...
I enjoyed the Oldest House Museum. The house and exhibits were interesting. The gift shop personnel were also interesting and provided a lot of information about the house and Santa Fe, in general.
