To make the most of visiting any of New Mexico's 19 pueblos, stop at this small but well-laid-out interpretive center for an overview of the history of the people who inhabited the region for centuries before the Europeans arrived. Permanent displays and videos explain the indigenous agricultural practices, spiritual beliefs and way of life, so in tune with the harsh... More

The first room of the center is really informative about pueblos and the history of Native Americans in the area and the downstairs had a quick bit of history of each of the pueblos in the area which was great. But, the rest of the center wasn't interactive or as informative - nothing really told in a way that grabs... More

This center had allot of the old school memorbilla which was nice. The people were very nice and the video that they showed of an old school member was very good.

Interesting place to go. They have an excellent restaurant, gift shop, and museum. Their native crafts are authentic and relatively reasonably priced.

we happened to be there on a day of special events and didn't have time to view them but did concentrate on the area that recorded peoples' time spent in the Indian schools. Children were removed from their families at a young age and sent to special schools where they were taught to forget their native ways and become indoctrinated... More

Love the exhibits, the pueblo dancers, the lovely gift shop. Icing on the cake? - the Pueblo Harvest Cafe as well as Party on the Pueblo horno pizza and great local music. It's nice to see them change and update some of the exhibits but also keep the important historical basics. I never knew about Popay and the Revolt until... More

It is more like reading a book than visiting a museum. It is not essential viewing. But then there is not a whole lot to see in Albuquerque.

The center has great displays with information about pueblo native Americans, a great restaurant/cafe and interesting items in the store. Check out their website and try to visit when there will be dancers from one of the Pueblos.

A very informative facility with great exhibits on Native American history and culture. Well designed, with very friendly staff / docents. The Pueblo Harvest Bakery and Restaurant served a very good breakfast.
