This was our first stop after arriving in New Mexico; good choice. It was a perfect introduction to the pueblos, history of the people, and their art and crafts. Beautiful. There were several videos too. We also had lunch at the Harvest Café which was a major surprise: the food was excellent. It was nice to see that natives were... More

The museum started out slowly, but improved when you went downstairs. We have visited similar a similar museum in Santa Fe and would rate it higher than this one. An excellent side trip would be the cafe. It served excellent food!

Interesting, in that there is a lot of information on what it was like going to the Indian school here in past decades, and the entire center is done from the Native American perspective. We specifically came on a weekend to see the Native American dancing. It was an hour of bewilderment, with a little unintended comedy. There were two... More

I really enjoyed our visit here and learnt new things about the Native American culture and how they lived and how they were treated by the white man. Good and bad of course. After a look around the museum we went into the restaurant because they were serving fried bread (a staple of the Native American?). Anyway, I (a European)... More

Ask for waiter, Brian, at the restaurant. He is fabulous, so enjoyable to converse with, and very professional. The menu is great! We will be back!

The center is full of history and interesting factoids. The gift shop has local pueblo and native american items for purchase and reasonable prices. Take plenty of water to drink if the day is warm and sunny.
