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

The Hispanic Cultural Center is absolutely beautiful. We attended the Festival Flamenco and it was wonderful experience.

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.

Whether you want music, dance, theater, live performances are abundant. The museum is delightful too. The restaurant is a bit expensive and service is sometimes slow, but the food is fabulous. Go to Globalquerque here in September for a World music extravaganza.

Was in ABQ for the first time and happened to see the Dorothea Lange exhibit. I studied the migrant mother in university and it was really something special to see it up close. Complimented by other works hanging in the same gallery. I really enjoyed my visit and the pieces they had on display.

Journal Theatre is one of the most intimate, comfortable, and enjoyable venues to see live theatre. Of course, that experience is enhanced 10x when you have just seen the fantastically entertaining Don Quixote Ballet backed by the wonderful music of NM Philharmonic and Grant Cooper. It's up close and personal from almost any vantage point, and the lobby provides a... More

The National Hispanic Cultural Center is located on Fourth street, at Central. It is just south of the zoo and aquarium. Parking is free and there is much to see, whether it is a 'festival day' or not. The Center has a good museum, an Administration building which often hosts art shows, a language institute, a movie/theater area, and the... More
