Santa Fe, New Mexico - New Mexico residents will be bringing their precious heirlooms and garage sale treasures to Milner Plaza on Museum Hill on June 14, 2022, when ANTIQUES ROADSHOW arrives in the capital city.
Museum of International Folk Art and Museum of Indian Arts & Culture will be closed Monday, June 13 and Tuesday, June 14 during the setup and filming of ROADSHOW. Museum Hill’s main parking lot and Milner Plaza will be closed to the public both days except on June 14 for individuals holding tickets to ROADSHOW.
ROADSHOW crews will be recording those “aha” moments when appraisers declare the value of guests’ items for broadcast on PBS’s most-watched ongoing television series - seen by some six-million viewers. Throughout the day, guests will hear free verbal evaluations of their antiques and collectibles from the country’s leading auction houses and independent dealers.
From the stop in Santa Fe and for each of the 2022 events, three episodes of ROADSHOW per city will be created for inclusion in the 19-time Emmy® Award-nominated production’s 27th broadcast season, which airs in 2023.
