The Indian Pueblo Cultural Center offers authentic native food in its cafe, an elegant gift shop with high quality art and jewelry, and exhibits that explore the history and contributions of the pueblos. I enjoyed the visit so much that I became a member. It is a place worth visiting many times and inspires respect for the Native American experience.

We visited later in the afternoon, and joined a. Tour in progress. The guide was very knowledgeable, and very pleasant. The exhibits were truly interesting. This is a first class cultural center, and I didn't have the time to really do more than skim the surface. So, allow yourself plenty of time, and try to be there when there is... More

Wonderful pueblo style building with art, sculptures , a great gift shop and a wonderful restaurant featuring native American food from the southwest. If you are lucky , you will see artisans making something, or doing a special dance . I can remember going there when I was a teenager and they had not built on all the extended buildings... More

We were in town for the Fiesta Balloon Festival in October. In between the events on the field, we took a quick trip to the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center. It was a great stop to be introduced to the Pueblo culture, experience various dancers and art. The Peublos within were so nice. Inviting me and my friends to experience the... More

I originally went to the center to enjoy Pueblo dancing. The event was held in the courtyard. The day was hot and it was difficult to hear the speaker, so I went inside to enjoy the displays. The exhibit on the Indian Boarding School in Albuquerque was particularly interesting. Other than the sub-par outdoor sound system, the museum is first... More

This is a cultural center, which includes a restaurant, business area and museum. Our visit focused on the museum, which was very interesting...we learned about the changes that they had to endure in the late 1800s as well as how they rose above that which oppressed them and succeeded in later years. The art portion was full of surprises and... More

For several years, this was my favorite dining spot in Albuquerque. I looked forward to each visit. The food was always very good, and the young enthusiastic native American servers and hostesses were friendly and efficient. Wow... I hope I hit them on a bad day, because things have really changed. I will admit that there was a huge patio... More

Be sure to eat in the restaurant and stay for some of the dancing. It's really good food and a great way to see demonstrations of dancing from different pueblos
