I went to Albuquerque the last weekend of September specifically to go to Globalquerque. On Saturday there were free events during the day. I saw two films and attended a music sampling and Q&A workshop by one of the headline acts. The Friday and Saturday night concerts featured 3 stages including traditional Colombian music and dance with intense guitar work... More

In the tower of this museum resides an astounding mural of Spanish history in Europe and in the American Southwest. The muscular style of the artwork is palpable.

This Museum and cultural center is a national treasure. We spent hours there and it wasn't enough. Try to get there on Sunday to view the breathtaking fresco - only open on Sundays (when admission is free). The Museum alone is worth a trip.

The sound track (no live musicians) was so loud I had to leave. Others were complaining too. Management said the sound had been turned down but it was still too loud. No refund of course.

I'm afraid NHCC suffers from too much real estate and not enough money to keep it all afloat. I must say they do have an excellent event calendar. There is something going on here pretty much every day. Also, I love the Torreon - the conical structure with the mural work by New Mexican native Frederico Vigil. The "art museum"... More

The National Cultural Hispanic Center has a lot to offer, from history to art, music and performances. I love the art museum, which features fabulous work by Hispanic artists. This is a place that is often overlooked and is well worth finding. If you are an art lover, you will love their wonderful collection and special exhibitions.

There are many aspects to the Hispanic Cultural Center. There are shows. Classes. Gardens. Places to celebrate. However, there is a new sculpture there by Jacob Sisneros that is gorgeous and full of history and respect. Go see it. It is carved out of metal, by water and has beautiful butterflies and hummingbirds intertwined with helicopters and soldiers dying.

Delve into the culture and history of New Mexico. The campus is in the process of becoming. The restaurant recently reopened with mexican flavors of delicious delights. The memorial the the mexican war veterans is well worth a moment's meditation. If there is a show in the cultural theater, attend...it is always top notch. The museum and artifacts are interesting...

The National Hispanic Cultural Center is located in a very dangerous area with high crime rate. Unsafe area to visit with children. Went here for an event and several attendees' vehicles were broken into during the course of the event. There were no security staff monitoring even though it was a children's event.
