This Center provides an excellent introduction to Pueblo Indian history and life. There is a museum ,an excellent restaurant with Native dishes, and a great gift shop with Native American jewelry, pottery, weavings, paintings, and also books and tourist items. The jewelry selection is top notch and quite impressive. Try and be there when there are Native American dance presentations... More

Newly redone museum has some state of the art exhibits for the New Mexico Pueblo Native Americans. Shumakolowa Native Arts is the authentic gift shop, and Harvest Cafe has some really great food. They have frequent dances and presentations. Worth spending at least a half day or more, and my usual tolerance for museums is about two hours, so that... More

The All Pueblo Indian Cultural Center is an interesting tourist stop especially when Indian dances are scheduled. It boasts virtually the only Native American cuisine in Albuquerque, which must be experienced by the out of towners. For the locals, though, there' s not much different from the blend of Mexican and Native American foods found at a number of other... More

We were staying literally across the street from the museum, so it was a natural spot to visit while on vacation. The museum is run by the 19 Pueblos of New Mexico, and discusses both the history and culture of the Native Peoples in Mew Mexico. Lots of interesting displays covering native art, culture, cooking - every aspect of tribal... More

We visited this museum on a day there were no events planned. So I am strictly speaking about museum portion. The events (dances or feasts they have scheduled) seem like they would bring A LOT to the experience. In the museum the first room they tell you to go to is chock full of information. A bit too much. I... More

The museum is well laid out and informative. It really provides basic essential information for anyone touring New Mexico and visiting pueblos and other Native American sites. And there's a very decent cafe for when one needs a break.

Very impressive. Historical and accurate in telling the story of the Pueblo People. Witnessed a wonderful show of native music, dance and poetry. Some of my best purchases where from the Native vendors there (Santo Domingo Pueblo). A MUST SEE.

Starting with the person charging the admission fee, everyone was very polite and helpful. We got to see some traditional dance that was very interesting but the presenter talked way too much about everything and nothing...kind of lost the audience at times. The exhibitions are interesting and educational. Good way to spend a couple hours.

The exhibits are really well made and there is so much information that is easily accessible. Gee, I learned so much in such a short time. The person working the desk was very generous with answering a ton of questions, too. A great place to visit!

Thank ErinJE
