For the most part, this museum was a good place to learn about Pueblo history and customs. However, there were some oversights. All of the text about the history was written in very tiny font, which, as a senior citizen, was almost impossible for me to read. What I did like were the displays of hand-crafted jewelry, mostly turquoise and... More

Beautiful museum telling the story of the Pueblo peoples struggles to survive and maintain a coherent culture in the face of the arrival of the white man. Faith in the spirit and powerful creativity drive the culture into the modern world where it maintains a haunting presence.

History and art are abundant. Don't have any dislikes. This is a beautiful part of Albuquerque's features. Explore leisurely, don't hurry through. There are things for children too.

Offers the visitor with a glimpse of the Indian culture that exits today, from historical roots in the area. The restraint could be an excellent venue but only lacks in creativity and flair. It should compete with the Casino's. Go once and that is enough, unfortunately.

A delightful way to see a glimpse into the culture and rich history of the Pueblos. Beautifully displayed artifacts, pueblo dances, history and education. Seeing the cultural center is one of my recommendations to all my friends Explore, shop, dine , and have a wonderful morning or afternoon.

I went to the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center recently to see an exhibit of Thunderbird necklaces, since I own one myself. I thought the exhibit was great, whoever curated it did a fantastic job. The museum also has very affordable admission fees, and a well-recommended restaurant, although I have not eaten there myself. There is plenty of parking and the... More

I have been to the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center many times with adults and children. One unique feature is a museum with the history of the pueblo indians told from their point of view. Volunteer docents act as tour guides and are very knowledgeable and eager to answer questions. The restaurant offers some traditional pueblo dishes as well as hamburgers... More

Temporary exhibit of the history of the Albuquerque Indian School was especially impressive. The displays and information concerning the history of the tribes of New Mexico was well done.
