We only had an hour or so, but learned quite a lot about the history of the area. Very interesting. Will be back.

Most interesting was the display about the Albuquerque Indian School which is the site of the Cultural Center. There a very large exhibit on ancient Indian culture in the basement of the building. Don't miss it. In the movie room they showed a continuous run of some Park Service films on making and firing Indian pottery. Worth spending a couple... More

This place is amazing. It is the few places we visited in the state that gives one a true picture of local Native American history. A timeline addresses events from pre-Spanish conquest days to present day. There are video presentations on education & pottery techniques. An added bonus is the Native American dancers.

This is a beautiful building and houses informative exhibits. The photographic art display was wonderful - dancers in such detail. The beadwork art in the giftshop was exquisite and expensive and I was glad to buy from the vendors in the courtyard. We had lunch in the restaurant and the green chilli soup and fried bread was delicious.

We not only enjoyed the historical information about the Indian cultures in the area but the native dance performed by the children and the vendors in the courtyard where the dances took place. Very nice wares.

the cultural center was interesting. i learned some disturbing history about the treatment of America's native populations which i was unaware of. we happened onto a performance of Native American dance which we enjoyed. i was hoping we would gain some insight into which pueblos to visit but the only info we got was that it depended on how far...

Wonderful place to see I highly recommend it. There were only two dancers when we went, but it was still very thrilling. if think about what you are witnessing, you can get wrapped up in the beat of the drum.

We enjoyed this center. The exhibits and displayed gave us a good introduction to the history and culture of the pueblo people of the area. My husband was there on business with the pueblos and it offered him additional understanding of a number of issues. This helped his sensitivity to the perspective of the individuals and groups that we met.... More

The Indian Pueblo Cultural Center offers authentic native food in its cafe, an elegant gift shop with high quality art and jewelry, and exhibits that explore the history and contributions of the pueblos. I enjoyed the visit so much that I became a member. It is a place worth visiting many times and inspires respect for the Native American experience.

Very interesting exhibits and extremely educational. If you have an interest in the New Mexico pueblos, or native American culture in general, then you should definitely pay a visit
