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

Headed here not really knowing what to expect. I was welcomed at the round mural exhibit and provided a personal tour of the mural, which is extraordinary. Then went to the art museum inside the main buildings. I was welcomed so warmly I couldn't believe it---you would never get a welcome like that in the Bay Area!! The ongoing exhibit... More

Have been here a few times and the food is always prepared to perfection. Out of all of the dishes I have had there isn't one I wouldn't recommend.

The Mundos de Mestizaje fresco, the largest concave fresco, which took 9 years and covers 4,400sf of a watchtower at the National Hispanic Cultural Center was high on my list of "must sees" in Albuquerque. The biggest problem was getting there! Fortunately, our hotel had a shuttle bus which took us there and we were almost the only people! A... More

I am fascinated by Native Culture and this did not disappoint. So many areas to explore, the history, how they lived, ate, dressed, the art forms I was taken back in time. The restaurant was fantastic. Everyone in NM that I have come across is filled with love and life....it's a very Spiritual, special place......enjoy!

My friends and I went to the Latin Dance Festival that was held at the National Hispanic Cultural Center the weekend of August 24th. It was a beautiful campus. The classes, instructors, and festivities were great!

The NHCC is the only national cultural center located outside Washington, D.C. and reflects the fact that 40% of New Mexico's population is Hispanic. Anyone visiting Albuquerque (we call it the Duke City) should go online to see what's happening there during their visit. There are flamenco shows at the large theatre, learning crafts like papel picado for the kids,... More
