The museum had two sections. One room had a detailed history which while helpful got to be too much reading. The second section went into more detail about the culture. I found the history of the culture and the battles that had to fight with Spanish other tribes and now the government of the US to be great background to... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and learned a great deal about the Pueblo people, their culture and values and their struggle for their basic rights over three centuries. The Center is well designed and the exhibits have an ideal level of information which makes moving through the story in a relaxed way. I would suggest that this is an essential... More

I believe this museum has done a recent overhaul of its exhibits. I found the materials and explanations to be very interesting and useful. We also noticed the interior architecture emphasized the culture without being overdone, fake or tacky. Also we enjoyed lunch at the cafe, interesting food. However, it did seem like there should be "more" given the overall... More

The Indian Pueblo Cultural Center is an excellent place to learn some of the history of the Indians who live in the area. The guided tour is very good.

This cultural center was outstanding! You'll learn so much about the Pueblo's beliefs, culture, and struggles as a people. The have a lot of modern handicrafts on display, and the museum will take you through their history beginning with their beliefs and ways of life, the impacts the Spanish arrival had on their culture, further impacts from the Mexican-American War,...

The museum tells the history of the Pueblo Indians to present day. The Pueblos are very much focused on maintaining their culture, and their form of governance. Displays on all aspects of Pueblo life inform you. The displays and videos are very well done, and include their historical fight for survival, as well as displays on pottery, weaving, dancing, musical... More

This place was really interesting to visit. I have a fairly minimal understanding of the pueblo peoples and their cultures, but this museum, which is owned and operated by the 19 pueblo peoples, did an excellent job of expanding that base and explaining the meaning behind pueblo actions from the sixteenth century to the present. There is a lot of... More

This is a beautiful Indian cultural center that highlight The Pueblo. It is well presented, and you may browse at your own pace. There is a good mix of artifacts, reading, and video. I learned a great deal as well as correcting some misconceptions. Children of school age and up will benefit from this.
