“Cross-cultural section of 19 Pueblos: art, history, dancing, cafe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2013

Heading to the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center is a perfect start for a glimpse of Albuquerque and its rich Native American heritage. This beautiful property is gorgeous, welcoming, educational, fun and, if you eat at the Harvest Cafe, delicious! Sometimes there are artists from local pueblos selling their jewelry, paintings, weavings or tiles in the lobby at tables. The gift shop is a wee bit pricey, but you will find some items not sold anywhere else, such as a hand beaded lanyard. The museum portion is $10 admission and worth every penny. Enjoy films, art, pottery and historic overviews of 19 local Albuquerque pueblos. The Harvest Cafe is worthy of a trip on its own. Prices are low, service is friendly and the f-o-o-d...the f-o-o-d! Best chile rellonos ever. Pasole is delicious as is all else. No wonder lots of locals dine there! During sunny weather sit outside and enjoy the smell of homemade pueblo bread baked in a kiva as you dine.

“Actually learned a few things”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2013

Lots of reading, lots to see and we actually learned a few things about the relationship between the native Americans and the US government. Well laid out with several interesting displays. Worth your time and admission fee.

“An amazing cultural experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2013

Although we didn't get the full cast due to the Thanksgiving holiday we did have an experience that was beyond words. This family came out to entertain and educate us on their heritage and culture and it was greatly appreciated. They are kind hearted people who speak of others and take great pride in their heritage. I greatly appreciated their tribute to the Veterans and their commitment to making sure that they were recognized and valued as the true heroes that they are.
I would've preferred the experience outside with a full cast but unfortunately the timing on my part was not great. Hopefully I get to come back through these parts and check them out again.

“Window to the past”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

This center was recommended by a friend and although the exhibits are very simple they give an interesting insight into the history and native culture of ABQ. The best part of the visit was seeing the Pueblo tribal dance performed by children. I loved that part of the visit.
