What a history of the Native American Indians. Their struggle was such a difficult one and even today, they are still fighting to keep their culture alive! You need to spend many hrs. here to get the full picture of the various tribes and their culture. So worth the time and a better understanding of these true Americans.

We learned a great deal about the history of the U.S. policy and practice in relation to Native Americans in New Mexico. There was a very informative historical time line display that was backed up with personal testimonies and artifacts for a very powerful overview. There was also a very good display of the draft styles of the different pueblos.

This is a must-go stop on your visit to ABQ! In addition to gorgeous permanent exhibits, there are always temporary exhibits that provide new ways to think about the cultures of the pueblos in New Mexico. The gift shop is excellent. The cafe is the best place to eat in town (no lie). Weekly there are dances, artists demonstrations, and... More

We had out-of-state visitors in for a day and a half, so we went to the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center so they could get a good sense of New Mexico. There was a dance performance that day, which was a nice treat. There is a lot of information on the culture and history of Pueblos in NM. Even though I... More

The food is excellent! The atmosphere is wonderful! I enjoy myself every time I eat there. I usually go for breakfast on a Sunday after church. I usually have the Huevos Rancheros which are delicious. I have to go there at least twice a month. The service is great. I highly recommend the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center.

Try to time your visit so that you can enjoy the performances that are scheduled on the weekends. tTraditional dances and storytelling are presented in the central courtyard. Leave enough time to look through two floors of historical exhibits that include the history of the Indian School and samples of pottery, weaving, jewelry from a variety of pueblo tribes in... More

This is a passport to the Land of Enchantment at its best. The history of the New Mexico Pueblo life is carefully detailed in its architecture, food, art, and spiritual life. We especially LOVE the hands-on area for children, where they can make a piece of pottery based on what they have learned. The artisans, dancers, and music on the... More

The history room is a bit dry but absolutely worth the time to understand how government interaction with tribes evolved over the years. Otherwise, the collection really needs to be fleshed out to truly convey the Pueblo's histories and stories. TIP - The special exhibit about a native New Mexican artist would not have impressed without the excellent movie explaining... More

This is a modest facility,but still worth a visit. I stayed near by so I could just walk over the road to it. If you line up your visit with one of the dance times it is worthwhile. It may not be a Hollywood production, but was still enjoyable.
