There were some interesting exhibits which, unfortunately, I was not able to devote much time to. I enjoyed the native dances and music performed in the center area outside. This is a good place to see some of the jewelry and pottery along with the artists, so you know what you are purchasing. The restaurant here was very good.

We had a catered lunch which was excellent and saw some wonderful Native American dancers perform. There were also talented native artists selling their wares as well as some real treasures in the gift shop. This is a must see.

We had only two hours and it really wasn't enough time. If you plan on visiting any of the Pueblos you'll feel more comfortable if you visit the cultural... More

While there, not only did I get to view the fantastic museum, but there were vendors in the courtyard along with Native American dancers and an emcee to explain the dress of the different tribes and the dances they showcased. What more could one want!!1

I really love this place so very much. I planned my trip there for the R. Carlos Nakai performance but went earlier in the day for the 2nd Annual Albuquerque Native Art Festival. There were so many vendors, beautiful dancers, friendly people. The exhibits are informative and touching, especially the one about the Indian school; made me very emotional. This... More

Thoroughly enjoyed the center and also the restaurant for something new for lunch. The service was a little slow and they were not that busy when we visited but still, relaxing and good food.

This beautiful building is full of Pueblo culture history. The art that adorns its insides are wonderful and special. There is a display in the round of all the treaties that were made and broken. There is also a restaurant and an excellent and large gift shop.

Lots of old photos, relics and arts and crafts make this a great learning experience. The traditions carried on by the current 19 Pueblos are wonderful and inspiring. Gives you a real appreciation for their survival despite terrible efforts to eradicate their language and culture.
