We really enjoyed this museum. They had a great gallery of American Indian artifacts and history while we were there. My kids especially enjoyed the music room and the hands-on room. Every worker we encountered was very friendly and helpful. We were not expecting to have as much fun as we did and overall, this was a highlight for the... More

IMAC was not scheduled, a rainstorm came up so it was an escape, but to our surprise we found the exhibits and artwork very good and enjoyable. It is worth a stop

It seemed like it would have been more appropriate as an exhibit in a larger museum rather than as a stand-alone museum

The security guard who was wandering around one of the exhibits pointed out some very interesting things about the exhibits. Overall the exhibits were interesting and beautiful the only problem was lighting. Half the time in the museum it is so dark that you can't really read the plaques. Many of the beautiful artifacts in the display cases couldn't be... More

The museum provides a valuable window into the history and culture of Native Americans. Very well designed displays, with both permanent and changing exhibits. Part of Museum Pass.

A very engaging and interesting museum. Many original artefacts, each with their own quirky stories behind them. The museum is the perfect side, managing to concisely cover many aspects of Indian art and culture; important life stages, education, language and more. Try and catch a free guided tour round the museum! Our guide was very interesting, sharing lots of extra... More

They sell a four museum pass for just $20, good for four days. If you can't make four museums you can get fewer for less money. It is a good deal. This museum is one of the four on the pass. I was so happy to find this place, just outside the downtown area at an area called "Museum Hill."... More

The location of this museum is beautiful. There are always interesting shows. The current turquoise show is exceptional. The permantant pottery and weaving shows are also very good.

I was so impressed with this Museum. If you want to learn about the culture of the Pueblo Indians, this is a "must see'. We had the most informed docent (Terry) take us on a tour of the exhibits. I learned so much from Terry about New Mexican Indian history and culture. He whet my appetite to learn more about... More
