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.

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

We visited later in the afternoon, and joined a. Tour in progress. The guide was very knowledgeable, and very pleasant. The exhibits were truly interesting. This is a first class cultural center, and I didn't have the time to really do more than skim the surface. So, allow yourself plenty of time, and try to be there when there is... More

Wonderful pueblo style building with art, sculptures , a great gift shop and a wonderful restaurant featuring native American food from the southwest. If you are lucky , you will see artisans making something, or doing a special dance . I can remember going there when I was a teenager and they had not built on all the extended buildings... More
