We visited shortly before Christmas and loved seeing and voting in the Pueblo Gingerbread contest. We watched the Navajo dancers at noon. My one year old loved the drums and seeing the dancers. A wonderful surprise for us was when my husband got pulled into the last dance! It was a fun time for the whole family. We ate at... More

We stopped here for a couple hours at the start of our Route 66 trip, and had an enjoyable time learning about the native tribes that inhabited (and still inhabit) the land. There are some excellent interactive exhibits, and the small video rooms make you feel immersed in the experiences of what you're viewing on the screen. This is a... More

I worked across the street from the IPCC or Indian Pueblo Cultural center. Often times I would be looking for a book that I needed for my teaching. They have a great resource center and are helpful with information.

This museum truly educates visitors as to the local peoples of Albuquerque - the many Pueblo tribes that inhabit the area. You'll find that most exhibits are about Pueblo culture - music, pottery making, etc. - but there are also lots of important exhibits about the oppression of these tribes. (As a white person, I must say that I shook... More

This is a really special place. It's museum and cultural center run by a consortium of all the New Mexico pueblos, so it's the native people sharing their own story and history. I feel like I learned so much here because of the first-person perspective. Plus, because the renovated center has been open only a few months, all the displays... More

This place is a must visit for tourists and locals alike. I enjoyed my tour, and learned so much more about my home state and my own culture. It's absolutely beautiful and the staff is very knowledgable.

This is a small facility but is very nicely done and quite educational. The admission fee is nominal and goes to a good cause. It isn't intended as an "art museum" but there are some wonderful works of art - paintings, sculptures, etc. It is a multimedia experience that we thoroughly enjoyed. A few videos and some audio excerpts helped... More

Not bad. It is more of a cultural center than a museum so keep that in mind if you are wanting to see a bunch of artifacts.
