It is located on a modern campus on the banks of the Rio Grande and is host to a variety of cultural events but we specifically went to the art exhibit. We enjoyed the permanent exhibit but of particular interest to us... More

Walking in to Globalquerque this year, we noticed the promenade of flags is mostly shredded flags, other places need paint, and the restaurunt is again closed and seeking a new concessionaire. When there for events, the bathroom faucets and soap dispensers dont work about 1/2 the time. Good improvement at the Journal Theater to add orchestra or dance space in... More

I've heard a lot about the exhibitions & events going on at NHCC.

It predominantly has hispanic artist and productions, which my wife and I like, but it is such a great theater that local opera, symphonies, and others perform here. Pick your event; you wont be disappointed.

We visited the art gallery and found many interesting works of art. A part of the gallery was closed but was being prepared for a show for the following evening. The curator apologized to us, explained which exhibit was coming, and even invited us back for the opening which was the following evening. The gallery provided a pleasant but inexpensive... More

Every single piece of theater produced in this space is wonderful. The staff do a wonderful job bringing top notch entertainment to this venue. The staff are great, the place is impeccably clean. The sound and lights are great. I would love to produce a play there. And this is the home of the best music event in the world:... More

The building is mostly offices, I think, but when I was there, the available galleries were filled with a wonderful show. It's a relatively short visit, but inexpensive and well worth it!

Wonderful architecture and one of the best art galleries I've every been to (and for $3 no less!). Very friendly staff and what a surprise in the tower!

If your into Local and Southwest genealogy, this is the best place to start your research. Great exhibit hall with touring art exhibit's. The Disney Theater has some of the best productions from local to national tour companies.
