“OUt Standing amount of information on the Tribes of NM”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

It is architecture of the building is beautiful and spiritual. The amount of information you gather regarding the local tribes and history is excellent. The art exhibits are wonderful. Always a special place to visit and bring visitors from out of state.

“See the dances”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

We were lucky enough to be around on a weekend when they packed their schedule with dances all afternoon. They had brought in groups from Arizona and New Mexico to entertain, tell stories and spread their culture with all the guests willing to learn.

The exhibits in the museum/gallery were really well done. There was adequate signage to explain the artifacts and artwork, but plenty of staff or volunteers were also on hand to guide you through the histories of the pueblos as well as more modern representations of pueblo artwork.
