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 unique place in the US. Be sure to take a tour of Sky City. The museum could use better exhibits. Like the wonderful pottery produced by Acoma women.

I will only comment about our experience on touring the Pueblo of Acoma. Judging from the reviews of fellow travelers, I assume we were rather unlucky with the tour guide we had. We expected to hear a lot about the way of life, the traditions,...More
