This museum is staffed and designed by Native Americans, so the orientation is sharing and explaining their culture (and their efforts to maintain it over the centuries of European/American rule...More

It was interesting learning about the Native American lifestyle throughout the years. You can see their art albeit just a modest sampling. You can learn about their government. You also see videos and audios of their customs and languages. What we enjoyed most was the...More

This place honors the 19 Pueblos and the Indian heritage of our land. It shows the beauty, sadness, art, imagination, and struggles of these amazing people.

We went to the patio of the Pueblo Harvest Café on an August evening. It's $10 for live music and all you can eat pizza made on the patio in their own horno. We didn't dance, but plenty of others did. The music is a...More

The Indian Pueblo Cultural Center provides a unique insight, curated by the pueblo people, of who they are and their relationship (from their perspective!) with the dominant culture. I'm very grateful that they are willing to share this information with us.

It was a dreary rainy morning so we thought we would start at a museum. We thought we would like it, but we were surprised how much we enjoyed the museum. Great history of the Pueblo People. First class exhibits. Interesting vendors--much more than the...More

Went for lunch at the Harvest Cafe with my daughter and granddaughter. Not only was lunch yummy but we were also treated to a Colorful dance performance. Then walking out we passed a ginger bread house display. All in all a fun NM afternoon !

To enter the museum I think is $20 for non residents. When we went, we enjoyed the outdoor dancing (only on weekends) and it was free because the gate was open to that public area? I don't know if that was unintended... More

Cultural performances? (2 Replies)
We're here this week, but unfortunately didn't plan well. We missed the native American dances at the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center yesterday and there are none on their calendar for the rest of our stay. Is there anywhere else we might see them? I thought it would be a nice experience for the kids. Thanks!

Trip Report -- Indian Pueblos (2 Replies)
We've just returned from a two-week trip through the SW (NM, AZ, UT), including visits to seven pueblos. Since I have a keen interest in pottery, I had earlier asked a question in this forum re the best way to contact individual potters and/or see their works outside of Albuquerque or Santa Fe shops and museums. Several of you "regulars" were very helpful with your suggestions, so a special thanks goes out to you CasaAzul, Sanibelog and TomSawyr. We started with an exploration of the...More

Public transport to Puye Cliff Dwellings? (4 Replies)
Hi, I'm in Santa Fe right now and don't have a car. I would really like to visit the Puye Cliff Dwellings. Is there any form of public transport going there? I haven't been able to find anything. I would also be willing to to take a tour there but it doesn't seem to exist except for the one from the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center in Albuquerque which only goes twice a week. I can't rent a car because my driver's license has been stolen. Thanks in advance!

I don't believe the dwellings are even open due to their being located smack dab in the middle of the largest forest fire in New Mexico history.
