Overview
More
The Sky City Cultural Center and Haak’u Museum, rich in cultural architecture, serves as the reception center and museum for visitors to the Pueblo of Acoma, as well as a research and community use facility for tribal members. The primary 40,000 square foot Cultural Center is a two story structure with a basement and central courtyard/plaza area. The Cultural Center was designed to represent and recreate the ancestral architectural styles of the Acoma people – which include natural stacked stone and natural mud plastered adobe – while showcasing Acoma Pueblo architecture both past and present. This world class facility is dedicated to the preservation of Acoma history, traditional pottery and other art forms, the repatriation of objects of cultural patrimony and the development of both educational and interpretive programs.

This is a must see, great history, fantastic scenery. Learn all about the Acoma people, and the history of this village dating back to before the Spanish Explorers. Regular walking tours, and a great café for lunch or snacks.

The Pueblo of Acoma is off the beaten track, yet is worth the drive. Remember, though, that you will be on a reservation leaving the 40, so mind the speedometers! 25, 35, or 45 mph means EXACTLY THAT! You will arrive (just follow the signs...More
