This is a great place to visit if passing through or stopping over night. I have never lived in this part of the country and learned a lot from the walk through about the indian pueblo culture.

If you can- be sure to go on Mothers Day. They have a wonderful celebration of mothers. Dancing, food, music. It is beautiful. Also, you can see, and in some cases purchase beautiful native crafts. NM land of the Navajo, the Apache, and many other peoples.

We currently live in Albuquerque, having moved from Houston, TX. We became members of the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center very quickly after our move. We make an almost weekly trip to view the Native American dance groups that come to the IPCC to share their music, songs, and dances. The weekly dances and song/music performances are always interesting and entertaining,... More

I really wanted to learn something about native American life so I went here with high hopes. In all fairness there were some very good displays of NM native artwork and examples of early life, but after learning about the Indian school, then seeing white people leading groups of native kids, I left kind of depressed. The highlight of this... More

This is a great stop to make if you are looking for a deeper understanding of the Pueblos and none are open during your visit to New Mexico. We loved it. It is very well done and well worth a stop.

I learned more about the plight of the American Indians, which was good. I liked the museum very much. Outside, there was a show of a man doing traditional dances and a lady on flute. It was very nice. We also enjoyed the audience participation at the end.

I had a tour of this beautiful centre two years ago and was so happy to be able to return and bring some friends. The overall architecture and appearance is exceptional. There is ample parking, and a large foyer, where arists from various Pueblos have art and crafts for sale at very reasonable prices. We were warmly welcome and received... More
