For those of you in ABQ, visiting here will provide understanding of the native american culture in NM that adds to the hispanic and anglo influences. Visiting the pueblos themselves would be the cherry on the cake.

From the moment we walked into the Cultural Center, we knew we would need more time than we had allocated. Although we had come to visit their shop for authentic handmade jewelry, that was only a minuscule part of what we were able to see and do. The work of the different Pueblos is distinct and impressive, but what I... More

The Cultural center was very accommodating with scheduling our t rip to visit the Acoma Pueblo. Our guide was very knowledgeable of the culture and history of the village. Take your camera for some wonderful views, We also purchased hand made jewelry and pottery as souvenirs .

I loved going through the pueblo you can watch the Natives making their pottery, and turquoise jewelry which you can purchase. We gave a ride to a woman and her child who was wanting to go into town and she gave us a pottery souvenir. A very friendly culture and with self-taught talents.

Good Native American menu and good service. Dine inside or outside on a patio. The restaurant is part of a Native American cultural establishment.

I have been to the museum several times and always learn something new each time. The dancers are exciting to watch, although I wish that more shaded sitting areas were available. I went to the Party on the Patio for the first time this summer and it is a great event. For $10.00 there is a live band all the... More

The museum is a good history of various Indian tribes and the whole story of Indian suppression in the west. There are events at the museum including Indian dancing on weekends. They are in full Indian dress and they are described as to what each element means. A good place to learn about Native Americans. This is a good place... More

It is easy to get lost in the space so give yourself a few extra minutes to get there - you wouldn't want to miss the fantastic dancers. Also, take a moment to view the art and jewelry.
