We went to understand the culture and get a history of the place.Typical tourist trap for food and gifts; eat and get souvenirs elsewhere

There is not much info on their culture or way of life. The content of this museum is very strange and uninteresting. The crafts and pottery of individual pueblos was excellent. Young kids would be bored here. Just not very interesting and it is high priced all the way around.

This place exceeded our expectations. We ended up spending 2 hours just roaming through the complex. If you want to learn the history of the native American Indians in this region, the Cultural Center is the place to go. We were enthralled with the documentation and embarrassed by how the Indian nation has been treated through the centuries. The most... More

Everything in the establishment is grossly overpriced. You can find the same items in other places in town for far less. The little restaurant is horrible and the place is designed to rip you off.

Such a wealth of history and a beautiful place. Don't skip the gift shop. Food was good and the dancers they suggested were fantastic.

One if the great things about most of ABQ's museums is that they all have a restaurant to enjoy a meal besides the actual sightseeing. Restaurant is very good. The museum is most interesting. We were only able to do one room; it was packed with information. Can't wait to go back and do another room.

We live in Mexico and know so much more about our pre-hispanic (& post-hispanic) culture than we know of the SW. This was one of two great options in Albuquerque to educate ourselves.

I learned a lot coming here but as there is so much detail written on the walls found that museum fatigue can set in pretty quickly. Still very much worth a visit as it sets the context for other tourism in the area.

I wouldn't call this great or excellent but has good info on the history of the Indian Schools, particularly the one in ABQ. One special exhibit showed a full case of pottery and crafts from each of the Pueblos. Super! First time I had ever seen all the pueblos represented in one place so you could see the similarities and... More

Surroundings are beautiful with meaningful artifacts and explanations. The daily dancers, in native attire are a great insight to the past and present lives of many American tribes. A must see in Albuquerque and did I say there is a good restaurant on site too.
