The best way to learn about the pueblo Indians of the southwest! The museum has excellent films on how famous potters create masterpieces. Live free Indian dances are spectacular. Visitors can purchase authentic native American art. The Harvest Café on site has delicious food.

I have no idea how they have managed to put together such a great resource and only charge $6 entry for an adult is beyond me. One exhibit room charts the history of the Pueblo Indians and the oppression they received from the colonisers. It certainly opened my eyes. Practically you could get round the exhibits in about 30 mins... More

This facility accurately portrays the culture of New Mexico's 22 pueblo groups, both historically and in the present day. It's a little "academic" in nature, so come prepared to learn rather than simply to enjoy.

There is so much information to be found at The Indian Pueblo Cultural Center. Exhibits rotate so what was there three months ago may not be here today. It's important to visit this site so that we can learn from our mistakes, learn from and about Native cultures and reduce the chance of repeating history. We can also learn new... More

Enjoyed the center. Being a history buff, enjoyed the history. The dance was fun, and got a chance to talk to the dancers as well. Would love to have seen more arts and crafts made by local artisans at more reasonable prices.

Seemed to be a comprehensive history of the Pueblo peoples. Very interesting displays, with terrific loop of interviews. Definitely worth the trip.

Luscious Margaritas. Wonderful food. Great service. Also a venue for special events such as weddings and grads. The historical components are tastefully executed and features the nine (I think) tribes who founded and operated the Centre.
