We visited the cultural center on a very quiet weekday, and so were not able to see any dancing or demonstrations, but we still enjoyed the many displays of Native American art. We especially enjoyed a film about how the traditional pottery is created. This museum is less interactive and requires more reading of historical information, so is probably more... More

We often bring visitors to see the dances at the cultural center, and the cafe is a favorite stop for breakfast.

Solid dishes all around. Food is of decent quality and prepared authentically. I would recommend the Indian Taco or a Stuffed Soapapilla

The center was a great way to see the culture of the Pueblo Native Americans of New Mexico. The center had many exhibits depicting history and art. One regret that we wish we had known about was that there are authentic dance performances on the weekends that we would loved to have seen. We spent about an hour and half... More

Wasn't bad for the price just a bit small. New area opening in April would wait till then to go to avoid the construction.

We visited during the day. Had lunch and then toured through the museum. I learned quite a bit about the New Mexico Indians. Came back later for their pizza & music on the patio and really enjoyed that. We do want to return to watch one of the cultural events here. If you are short on time and not able... More

This was a surprise find on our trip. The entry fee is $5 for Adults and children 5 and older are $3. Your entry fee is all you pay. Any special exhibits, dances etc. are included. We were lucky to pass through on a weekend and saw the Native American Tribal dancing exhibition. Amazing! There are some beautiful pieces of... More

Not at all gimmicky or flashy, this is a beautiful and fascinating place to visit. Featuring indigenous art, culture, and history, the center also hosts rotating exhibits and does a truly great job of showcasing the features of the local Pueblos. When we were there, there was a show discussing the history of the Indian Schools which was extremely illuminating.... More

Pretty boring place. Nice exhibits, but very thin museum. Doesn't worth the prices, I would expect to free entrance for this place. They do have some types of discounts though. Hit this place only if you have nothing else to do in Albaqurque.
