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.

The best performance venue in New Mexico is the Albuquerque Journal Theater. Just under 700 seats, wonderful acoustics, large stage with good access for the performers and patrons. The only huge flaw is that lack of reasonable parking. The parking area is very large but a football field or two away from the venue. The New Mexico Philharmonic does Sunday... More

New Mexico has so many great art (and other) museums perhaps we've been spoiled. We're not art critics, but neither my wife nor I found much of interest here. Perhaps it was just not our style. And a major part of the exhibit area was closed to make room for a new exhibit. However, one exhibit that we really enjoyed... More

Still maturing, the NHCC is about 10 minutes from downtown, has plenty of parking, but currently no food facilities.

I remember when the Gift Shop was well stocked and interesting. It looks like the center has fallen into disrepair. With so many buildings and so much potential it is sad that it can be busy all the time.

My son took me here for Mother's Day, there is a beautiful restruant on the grounds in an old Historic building. Food, staff and history is worth spending about 3-4 hours here.

The museum is wonderful, many exception paintings and sculptures. There are other buildings on the grounds that promote Hispanic heritage, auditoriums, etc. Nice for the people who live there that it's more than just a museum.
